As Interim Director and Deputy Director of the University of Washington Climate Impacts Group, Dr. Vogel provides leadership, oversight and continuity of operations for the organization, including external relations, fundraising, government and University relations, budgeting, strategic planning, and technical excellence in applied interdisciplinary climate impacts and adaptation research and engagement. He serves as the lead principal investigator for the Northwest Climate Resilience Collaborative, a five-year multi-institution collaboration with other universities and community-facing non-governmental organizations funded as a NOAA Climate Adaptation Partnership program (formerly known as RISA). The Resilience Collaborative was envisioned as an effort to center Tribes and frontline communities in the implementation of a climate resilience research and engagement program. We continue to evolve through ongoing engagement with community partners and by adopting an approach of reciprocity, where communities benefit tangibly from engaging with our program. Dr. Vogel is committed to systemic change in social-environmental systems to ensure the most sustainable and equitable possible future for human and non-human beings. He is a fierce skeptic, always questioning how to achieve the greatest impact, and committed to his team and their success.
