Meet JPB Fellow Marccus Hendricks

Hendricks, an assistant professor in the University of Maryland School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation’s Urban Studies and Planning Program, will receive up to $240,000 over three years as he plans to explore how toxic flood waters and damaged infrastructure resulting from natural disasters beget public health crises. In addition, Hendricks’ research will investigate how “citizen scientists” can play a part in monitoring and inspecting infrastructure systems in order to fill the gaps left by municipalities’ lack of capacity for routine inspections.
