Miyuki Hino is a Ph.D. candidate in the Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources at Stanford University. She studies strategies for managing flood risk in a changing climate, ranging from strategic relocation programs to insurance and real estate markets. Her research examines the social, environmental, and economic dimensions of climate change impacts and adaptation to inform planning and policy choices.
She comes to Stanford after several years developing and harnessing scientific knowledge to guide climate change adaptation and mitigation decision-making, across the spectrum from academic research to science communication. She contributed to climate-resilient development as a consultant with ICF International, analyzing the impacts of climate change on infrastructure and creating climate risk screening tools for international development organizations. Her professional experience also includes developing tailored messages on the economic benefits of climate change mitigation policy for government officials and business leaders with the New Climate Economy, and research on flexible infrastructure investments for flood risk management at the University of Oxfords Environmental Change Institute.
Miyuki received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Yale University.
