Daniel L Engelberg is interested in how communities can better prepare for uncertainty futures. His research seeks to understand how uncertainty impacts our planning behavior and how we might deliver plans that embrace the potential in uncertainty. Central to this work is a concern for how communities imagine and enact more just and equitable futures. In this frame, Daniel is co-editor with Kevin Lee of Projections Volume 17: Planning Just Indigenous Futures, Challenging 21st-Century Empire. Before joining DUSP, Daniel researched and participated in exploratory scenario planning at the National Center for Smart Growth at the University of Maryland. Additional research interests include land and transportation, justice in transportation, socio-environmental synthesis, urban systems modeling, and regional land use planning.
Daniel possesses a Masters in Community Planning from the University of Maryland and a Bachelors of Arts in Mathematics from Bates College.
