Adam Millard-Ball

Associate professor, Environmental Studies, University of California, Santa Cruz

I am an associate professor in the Environmental Studies Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

My research bridges urban planning and environmental economics, and addresses some of the key challenges in transportation, energy and climate change policy. My current work examines global patterns of urban sprawl and car ownership, the effectiveness of local climate planning efforts, and the design of carbon trading programs. I also have broad interests in transportation planning and policy, particularly parking management programs to reduce vehicle travel and emissions.

I teach courses in environmental policy, environmental economics, and urban and transportation planning. I received the 2019 Excellence in Teaching Award from UCSC.
