Isaac Palomo joined CLIMAS in the early Fall 2017 School Semester at the University of Arizona. He is currently a graduate student within the College of Architecture Planning and Landscape Architecture pursuing his Masters in Landscape Architecture. As sustainable landscapes as an emphasis in his undergrad SBE degree, he wanted to go deeper in the profession and opted to take the Accelerated Masters Program in Landscape Architecture. His research interests include integration of sustainable development into the built environment, such as the implementation of green infrastructure, and how extreme climate events may affect the urban fabric such as landscapes, planning and agriculture.
At CLIMAS, his primary tasks includes gathering background information on climate and environmental research for use by CLIMAS, organizing recent climate and environment stories of interest that may be included in the Rio Grande-Bravo and CLIMAS website, and translating RGBO and SWCO climate outlooks for each month.
