Dr. Budolfson is an Assistant Professor at the University of Vermont within the Department of Philosophy. His research centers on interdisciplinary issues in public policy, public health, and ethics, especially related to collective action problems such as climate change and other dilemmas that arise in connection with common resources and public goods. His current research focuses on population-level bioethics and quantitative analysis of environmental justice as applied to climate economics, food systems, and ecosystem health.
His discussion will describe methods for quantifying environmental justice and human wellbeing in models of climate change and public health. He will also describe how these and related methods can be used to make progress in policy analysis related to health disparities, population growth and associated interventions, and other challenges.
