PhD Student, NYU, McGill University

Malcolm received his Master’s from McGill’s Department of Geography in 2016. His research seeks to track if cities are adequately responding to global climate change. He developed and applied a method to track urban climate change adaptation policy using planning documents from municipalities. His Master’s research also developed a way to monitor the status of adaptation planning in Dhaka, Bangladesh, a city with acute exposure and projected impacts from flooding and extreme heat. From 2013 to 2016 he led the urban component for the Tracking Adaptation to Climate Change Consortium, a research group based at McGill University in Canada and Wageningen University in the Netherlands. His general research interests are in the urban governance of environmental problems and social equity in climate policy.
