Assistant Professor Luis Quintero explores the similarities between two of the greatest crises confronting humanity – the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change.

In a video-recorded presentation for the Hopkins at Home website, Carey Business School Assistant Professor Luis Quintero explores the similarities between two of the greatest crises confronting humanity – the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change.

Quintero, an economist whose research focuses on structural econometric analysis of urban growth and housing markets, discusses how the two crises are directly connected. He also examines how the pandemic could affect society’s ability to become more sustainable and avoid the threat of irreversible climate damage.

The Hopkins at Home site, launched in April 2020 and organized in partnership with the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association, gathers lectures, mini-courses, JHU@TED talks, and other readily-downloadable resources from the university and offers them free to the public.
