Wildfire risk and land use
Noam Rosenthal is a first-year doctoral student interested in the intersection of land use and climate-risk. He specifically focuses on the compounding impacts of wildfire smoke and heat in cities, using remote sensing and machine learning. He holds a B.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering and M.S. in Earth Systems from Stanford University. Prior to matriculating at UCLA, Noam worked for the Google venture Premise Data, an international data-sourcing company. Most recently he worked with the Natural Resources Defense Council on a study to catalyze private investment in adaptation infrastructure. In his spare time he enjoys singing, hiking and flâneuring city streets.
