Katerina Elias-Trostmann

Research Analyst

I am a Research Analyst at WRI Brasil and is based in São Paulo. At WRI, I am part of of the global Climate Resilience Practice, where I focus on urban climate resilience and community response.

To date, my work and research experience has been working closely with cities to enhance community resilience in municipal resilience plans and city strategies. I led the research and development of Individual Resilience Indicators, which are being adopted by cities in Brazil. 

I have previous experience working for the UK Green Building Council and NACUE in London, for a communications technology company in Geneva, and for Ashoka in Paris.
