Speakers
{"version":"0.3.0","atoms":[],"cards":[],"markups":[],"sections":[[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"Sarah Jack Hinners, PhD., is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of City and Metropolitan Planning at the University of Utah, and the Director of the interdisciplinary Center for Ecological Planning and Design. She has a BA in Geography and Environmental Studies from McGill University and a PhD in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Her primary research and teaching interests focus on the social and ecological roles of nature and natural systems within the urban fabric. In 2019, she launched an initiative called Carbon Capture in the Built Environment, aimed at identifying and building a network of local researchers and practitioners actively working on carbon negative technologies, approaches, and design."]]]]}
