Housing Discrimination and the Pollution Exposure Gap in the US
Dr. Christensen leads a team of economists and computer scientists that are integrating new forms of data, machine learning algorithms, and large-scale experiments into economic research in his role as a core faculty member at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA). He focuses on energy and environmental economics, particularly as related to public goods provision in cities around the world.
His talk will discuss the extent to which discrimination constrains the housing choices of minorities and contributes to inequity in health outcomes, as part of the Howard H. Baker Center's Energy and Environment Forum.
This event is free and open to the public. Guests may park in the Vol Hall Garage at no cost by requesting a voucher from the Baker Center staff at the event. Directions to the Baker Center can be found here.
