ISC and its partners organised the 9th edition of the Science Summit around the 78th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA78) on 12-29 September 2023.
The role and contribution of science to attaining the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be the central theme of the Summit. The objective is to develop and launch science collaborations to demonstrate global science mechanisms and activities to support the attainment of the UN SDGs, Agenda 2030 and Local2030. The meeting will also prepare input for the United Nations Summit of the Future, which will take place during UNGA79 beginning on 12 September 2024.

NYU Langone Health
Assistance Professor
My research utilizes life cycle assessment and principles of industrial ecology to analyze and improve the environmental performance of medical systems, hospital design, healthcare practice, and medical technologies. My overarching goal is to develop a new field of specialized research focused on clinical sustainability, which introduces medical providers to data-driven, environmentally-preferable solutions while simultaneously developing and improving sustainability metrics and tools to better account for human and environmental health. 

Specialties: environmental sustainability, life cycle assessment, green buildings/hospitals, sustainable healthcare, industrial ecology, science communication
