Biography: 

Dr. Hagen holds a M.Sc. in Spatial and Environmental Planning from the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany and received his PhD in Environmental Design and Planning form Arizona State University (ASU). He is currently a Lecturer at the School of Sustainability, a Senior Sustainability Scientist in the Global Institute of Sustainability, and a Faculty Affiliate of the Urban Climate Research Center at ASU. Prior to joining the School of Sustainability, Dr. Hagen was an Assistant Research Professor at ASU’s School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning.

Dr. Hagen’s expertise in teaching and research is in the areas of climate change adaptation and resiliency planning, environmental vulnerability and impact assessments, environmental and social justice issues in planning, sustainable urbanism, and planning methods. His research focuses on the social-cultural dimensions of sustainable and resilient cities. A current study focuses on the efforts of the city of Freiburg, Germany to implement sustainable development patterns by studying two local neighborhood developments. Dr. Hagen is also conducting research on the areas of climate change mitigation and adaptation, public risk perception, and risk communication. By studying the nature of public perceptions of global climate change in different countries over time, his work contributes to improving climate change communication efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to increase the adaptive capacity and resiliency of urban environments.
