Gerald Torres


Professor Torres’ work over the past several years has addressed the environmental justice challenges posed by climate change. Locally, he works with the Sea Grant Programs in New York and Connecticut to help our coastal communities formulate resiliency and adaptation standards. In addition, Professor Torres works with Indigenous Nations to help highlight the impacts of climate change on those communities. This work opens up new avenues for research and practical action at the intersection of climate change, resource use, and public health.
