Peleg Kremer

I am an environmental scholar, social scientist and geographer studying urban sustainability, social-ecological urban system, urban food systems, and socio-spatial aspects of environmental planning for sustainability. My current research includes conceptual and empirical quantitative investigations of urban ecosystem services (UES) as they interact with the urban social-ecological system. In particular, I am interested in questions of scale, thresholds, tradeoffs and synergies in the supply and demand of UES, access to and the distribution of UES, the relationship between urban structure and the provision of UES as well as the influence of land change and development policies on UES. I earned my PhD from the Center for Energy and Environmental Policy at the University of Delaware working on local food systems as a strategy for urban sustainability and recently finished my post-doctoral fellowship in Urban Ecosystems at the Tishman Environment and Design Center at the New School University in New York City.
