Miyuki studies climate change risks and adaptation decisions, exploring the linkages between natural hazards, governance and public policy, and social and economic outcomes. She draws on methods from across the social sciences, ranging from interviews to applied econometrics, to measure the impacts of climate change and evaluate the effectiveness of adaptation strategies. Before arriving at Stanford, she worked as a research analyst at the New Climate Economy exploring the economic benefits of climate change mitigation policy and developing tailored messages for government officials around the world. Her professional experience also includes adaptation consulting to identify and mitigate climate risks to international development projects and research on flood risk management decision-making at the Environmental Change Institute .
Miyuki received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Yale University.
