Please note, our ISIE webinar featuring Dr. Stephanie Pincetl will now be on Wednesday, March 28th from 4:00-5:00 pm EST

In an era where cities are actively developing urban sustainability goals, too often, the right kinds of “Big Data” are not adequately gathered to guide new programs and policies. Dr. Stephanie PincetlDirector of the California Center for Sustainable Communities at UCLA, is using Big Data to better understand building energy use and water management in Los Angeles County to improve the sustainability of urban systems.


March 09, 2018, 2:00 - 3:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Registration required.

The webinar will demonstrate the importance of empirical data for urban transformation. For cities to reduce their resource use, we need to know how resource flows are used in cities, and their supply chain impacts. Guided by the concepts of “urban metabolism,” Dr. Pincetl’s research attempts to develop the types of data necessary for understanding cities and their dependencies on the resources of nature.



 Dr. Stephanie Pincetl is a Professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, and Director of the California Center for Sustainable Communities at UCLA. She is an expert in bringing together interdisciplinary teams of researchers across the biophysical and engineering sciences and social sciences to address problems of complex urban systems and environmental management. Dr. Pincetl has written extensively about land use in California, environmental justice, habitat conservation efforts, water, and energy policy. She has received funding from the National Science Foundation to research urban ecology and water management in Los Angeles, as well as from the California Energy Commission PIER program to investigate energy use in California using urban metabolism and social policy concepts. Her book, Transforming California, the Political History of Land Use in the State, is the definitive work on land use politics and policies of California.
