Yasmin Romitti is a PhD student in the department of Earth & Environment at Boston University. She is interested in questions that lie at the intersection of climate impacts, energy, and health. Specifically, her research examines how urban populations adapt to increasing temperatures exposures, the associated energy demand consequences of such adaptation, and how such adaptation moderates heat-related health outcomes. Prior to her graduate studies, Yasmin worked as a research associate with both the Board on Atmospheric Sciences and Climate and the Board on Earth Sciences and Resources at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in Washington, D.C. She received her Bachelor’s degree from Boston University in International Relations and a Master’s of Advanced International Studies from the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna in Austria.
