Xinyu Fu is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Urban Studies Institute.
His dissertation research focuses specifically on the adaptation planning endeavors for sea-level rise among the coastal cities in the US and aims to provide planning and policy implications for translating these emerging plans into on-the-ground adaptation actions. Xinyu’s primary research interests rest on urban resilience and sustainability in the face of climate change and he hopes to conduct evidence-based research and studies to help communities become more resilient and sustainable. His current research at USI is to explore the urban ramifications of climate change, particularly sea-level rise, in relation to the coastal infrastructures and developments.
