Associate Professor Samia Rab Kirchner: Urban Watersheds & Waterfront: Co-designing a sustainable city
Associate Professor Samia Rab Kirchner of Morgan State University is one of our new visiting professors and will discuss her research that has identified a missing threat that compromises any pursuit of sustainability: designed urban equalities. She uses the example of Baltimore as a city where centuries of design decisions have created segregated neighbourhoods.

She has taught at the American University of Sharjah (UAE), the University of Hawaii (Honolulu) Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta).
