Jeonghwa Yi is a licensed environmental engineer from South Korea. She is currently completing a PhD focuses on how the assessment of urban planning schemes can be undertaken to support sound engineering decision-making in the context of climate change. Using a case study approach, she is exploring the assessment tools that can be used to enable climate change considerations to be taken account more effectively.
