Brown, Robert Professor


I am a professor of Landscape Architecture & Urban Planning at the Texas A&M University. I have the privilege of working with a lot of bright and talented students. Through our studies we've come to understand the atmospheric environment in new and often surprising ways. We study how elements in the landscape modify the different components of the microclimate, and how the microclimate affects the thermal comfort of people. By integrating these landscape architects can design environments that modify the microclimate to create thermally comfortable outdoor environments. This is particularly important in the context of global climate change and intensification of urban heat islands.
