on Wed, Oct 15, 2014 at 8:50 PM


Lilia Yumagulova was awarded the 2014 Bullitt Environmental Fellowship Award on September 22, 2014 in an award ceremony in Seattle. Lilia was born and raised in the Soviet Union in a marginalized community prone to recurring floods on the outskirts of a large urban center. It was witnessing these regular ‘disasters’ affect her community year after year that influenced her choice of profession.

Lilia holds degrees in Engineering in Emergency Management from Russia and a M.Sc. in Risk Analysis (King’s College London, UK). Currently, she is a PhD Candidate at the School of Community and Regional Planning at the University of British Columbia. Her research looks at urban and regional planning for risks, disasters, and climate change. She is currently focused on the Metro Vancouver, Canada region as her laboratory in her search for resilience in regards to the natural and urban environments. Lilia plans to expand her work to the Pacific Northwest by creating a network for addressing regional climate change adaptation planning.
