Paul Coseo is an expert landscape architect, optimistic designer and researcher who loves urban landscapes and weather.
He examines the intersection of urban climate and design through ecological, climate justice, and social learning lenses.
His background in meteorology, landscape architecture, and urban planning allows him to focus on the drivers of extreme temperatures in cities and, more importantly, the strategies to create more thermally comfortable and equitable cities.
His research areas extend from analyzing social and ecological drivers of extreme temperatures to designing processes that address those drivers to monitoring implemented strategies.
Coseo is co-lead of the Urban Design Interdisciplinary Research Theme at ASU's Central Arizona-Phoenix Long Term Ecological Research project. He is on the leadership team of ASU's Urban Climate Research Center and an affiliate faculty member of the Biomimicry Center and the Center for Biodiversity Outcomes at ASU.
