Associate Dean for Research
Director, Rutgers Center for Urban Policy Research
Sc.B. with Honors, Engineering, Brown University; S.M., Technology and Policy, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Ph.D., Regional Planning, Massachusetts Institute of Technology 
Research Interests
  • How people use the built environment
  • Climate change mitigation, especially energy-efficient buildings, clean energy policy
  • Climate change adaptation, especially regarding local decision making in the coastal zone, and decentralized responses to urban heat stress
  • Effects of technological change on urban life

Clinton J. Andrews is a professor, center director, and the associate dean for research at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, Rutgers University. He was educated at Brown and MIT in engineering and planning, and he worked previously in the private sector and at Princeton University. He teaches urban planning and public informatics courses, and he performs research on how people use the built environment. His work addresses climate change mitigation and adaptation, and how technological changes affect urban life. He has current projects on the energy transition, fiscal impacts of coastal hazards, and how low-income urban seniors cope with heat stress and poor indoor air quality. He publishes both scholarly and popular articles and his books include Humble Analysis: The Practice of Joint Fact-findingRegulating Regional Power Systems, and Industrial Ecology and Global Change. He recently completed service as co-editor of the Journal of Planning Education and Research, and he remains a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Industrial Ecology. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners and a licensed Professional Engineer. Andrews is a Fellow of AAAS, and a winner of IEEE’s 3rd Millenium Medal.
