Noah Gershon is a civil engineering Ph.D. student in the civil systems program at the University of Colorado Boulder. He is passionate about helping communities adapt to the effects of climate change, with specific research interests in collective action and policy for equitable wildfire disaster recovery and resilience. He is working on an NSF-funded study with advisors Amy Javernick-Will and Abbie Liel on post-fire recovery in the context of the Marshall Fire which destroyed over 1000 homes in Boulder, Colorado in 2021. Before pursing this research, Noah worked on solving issues related to integrating solar energy onto the sensitive electrical grid in Oahu, Hawaii. This work motivated him to return to school to further societal goals of sustainability and resilience. He earned his B.A. in engineering physics from the University of Colorado.
