Angel R.  Rodriguez

Angel Rodriguez is Research Fellow (2021-2022) at Institutional Antiracism and Accountability (IARA) Project and coordinates the Health Equity research area. 

Under this area, Angel manages the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation grant for Antiracist Interventions in Healthcare project.
This project aims to establish an antiracist framework for evaluating institutional and organizational change in the healthcare sector. Through library and case studies, the objective is to provide a systematic understanding of the uses and opportunities for antiracist interventions across hospitals, public health agencies, and professional associations. 

As a second project, Angel’s is developing a sustainability roadmap for revitalizing Brownfield properties into Digital-Energy campuses. This policy-driven strategy was designed as a Covid-19 resilient and recovery framework for fostering a community of practice that facilitates learning and equity implementation at the municipal level. The project is currently titled: Brownfield Data Center Theory, and was most recently announced at the 2022 Data Center Sustainability Summit under the General Service Administration (GSA) and the Department of Energy (DOE). 

Angel has a background in History, Public Health, and Sustainable Science Policy, especially in Geothermal (renewables) Energy.
