Dr. Brooks is an interdisciplinary environmental social scientist who draws on evolutionary theory to study social-ecological systems dynamics, the evolution of institutions for sustainable resource use, and the relationship between sustainable consumption, well-being, and the built environment. He is seeking applications for postdoctoral researchers to contribute to a collaborative project on evaluating the social, economic, and environmental impacts of green infrastructure installed through the Blueprint Columbus program. He uses empirical analysis to explore synergies and tradeoffs between individual consumption patterns and well-being indicators. This project will expand upon ongoing research on Blueprint Columbus to draw on the cultural evolution literature to understand how different social and physical environments can shape the relationship between sustainable consumption and well-being. The project will build on partnerships with the City of Columbus, including David Celebrezze at the Office of Environmental Sustainability, and Leslie Westerfelt with Blueprint Columbus.
