  “Policy recommendations to enhance and enforce protections in heat vulnerable settings”

Turner PhotoAssistant Professor V. Kelly Turner’s research addresses the relationship between institutions, urban design, and the environment through two interrelated questions: (1) How does urban design relate to ecosystem services in cities? and (2) To what extent do social institutions have the capacity to deliver those services? Her approach draws from social-ecological systems frameworks to address urban planning and design problem domains. In recent work she has used this approach to investigate microclimate regulation through New  Urbanist design, water and biodiversity management through Homeowners Associations, and stormwater management through green infrastructure interventions.
