Event Description

Dr. Vijay Limaye, Climate Change and Health Science Fellow, Science Center, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)

Vijay Limaye is an environmental health scientist working as a Climate Change and Health Science Fellow at NRDC. He is broadly interested in addressing international environmental health challenges—quantifying, communicating, and mitigating the risks associated with climate change—with a focus on the public health burden of air pollution and extreme heat events. Prior to his role at NRDC, he worked for three years as a scientist at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regional offices in San Francisco and Chicago, focusing on Clean Air Act regulatory implementation, risk communication, citizen science, and air-quality monitoring policy. Dr. Limaye has conducted interdisciplinary research quantifying the health impacts of climate change-triggered air pollution and heat waves for populations in the U.S. and India. He holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Berkeley and a PhD in environmental epidemiology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
