On Tuesday, September 19th, Chao REN, a renowned researcher in the field of Sustainable Urban Planning, will visit our group to extensively discuss the state and the general course of the MyKlima project, which deals with the effects of global warming, fast urbanization, and environmental stressors on the quality of life in modern cities.

Chao REN is an Associate Professor in School of Architecture, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Her research interest is Sustainable Urban and Environmental Design and Urban Climatic Application in Urban Planning, focusing primarily on examining the relationship between urban climate and urban morphological characteristics, developing an urban climatic mapping system, and analyzing urbanization-induced human thermal comfort and public health risk impacts for high-density/compact cities.

Hamburg Interdisciplinary Colloquium on Smart Sustainable Cities

Global warming and fast urbanization are affecting the quality of life in modern cities. Air pollution, heat, noise, and other environmental stressors are constantly harming the health and well-being of the citizens. Detailed knowledge about the environmental impacts and public resources play a significant role in a socio-ecological and sustainable city development. Our goal is to investigate whether crowdsourcing-based approaches can be used to improve urban measurement networks regarding resolution, innovative applications, and cost-efficiency.

On June 22nd, 2017, we organize the “Hamburg Interdisciplinary Colloquium on Smart Sustainable Cities” together with Dr. Dirk Bade and Dr. Benjamin Bechtel. Students from the Department of Informatics and from the Institute of Geography will come together to present and to discuss their projects.
