Research and Professional Interests

Alessandro Rigolon is interested in environmental justice issues related to urban green space and their impacts on health equity. His current work falls in three areas: policy determinants of inequities in park provision, drivers and resistance to gentrification fostered by new parks (i.e., “green gentrification”), and the public health impacts of urban green space on marginalized communities. Current projects include studies on the health impacts of green gentrification, the work of nonprofits in achieving environmental justice for parks, and the contribution of green space for upward mobility.
