Tim Lazaroff

Tim Lazaroff researches crisis governance of essential urban services to reimagine cities’ approaches in meeting complex, uncertain sustainability challenges. His research on transport governance in his native New York advocated transforming regional collaboration in the wake of 2017’s “Summer of Hell”. Further research on Berlin and New York’s COVID-19 public education reframed urban crisis governance within neoliberalism’s disposition towards uncertainty. Tim now lives in Berlin, where he serves as a global project manager for a network of cities pursuing sustainable development.
