Rachel Morello-Frosch is Associate Professor in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management and the School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Morello-Frosch’s research examines race and class determinants of environmental health among diverse communities in the United States. A focus of her work is the relationship between segregation and environmental health inequalities associated with air pollution, children’s environmental health, and the intersection between economic restructuring and community environmental health. Currently, Dr. Morello-Frosch collaborates with colleagues and environmental justice organizations to research and address climate justice issues, including the social equity implications of proposed greenhouse gas reduction strategies in California associated with the AB32 Scoping Plan; and disparities in community capacity to adapt to environmental impacts of climate change.
