Welcome to the website for Andrew Rumbach, Assistant Professor of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Colorado Denver and a research affiliate faculty at the Natural Hazards Center. My research centers on household and community risk and resilience to natural hazards, in the United States and India. I received my Masters and PhD in City and Regional Planning from Cornell University and a BA in Political Science from Reed College.
In Colorado, I am part of the team that manages Planning for Hazards: Land Use Solutions for Colorado, a guide and website for helping communities to build resilience through land-use planning. I am also a board member of the American Planning Association Colorado Chapter and on the steering committee of the Colorado Cultural and Historic Resources Task Force.
