Please join us for a conversation with Dr. Celina Balderas Guzman about developing local partnerships to explore how coastal wetland migration could impact people, particularly disadvantaged populations.This will be an opportunity to learn more about Dr. Balderas Guzman’s current research of this topic and to discuss any opportunities for future collaboration.

Dr. Celina Balderas Guzman is an assistant professor in the Department of Landscape Architecture and adjunct assistant professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Washington. Dr. Guzman is an environmental planner and scientist who conducts applied research on coastal adaptation to sea level rise. Specifically, she studies how people and wetlands are adapting to sea level rise and how their adaptation can be either maladaptive by shifting vulnerabilities to other people and or non-humans, or synergistic in multiplying the benefits for both.

Dr. Guzman’s past work showing how hardening or softening shorelines could affect coastal wetland adaptation to sea level rise in a region demonstrates the complex interdependencies between people and wetlands. Overall, her work is directed towards informing cross-sectoral, equitable adaptation and conservation planning at a regional scale.
