Brian Deal

I am actively engaged in teaching and research on issues broadly relating to sustainability and planning. My scholarship includes the study of planning from an energy conservation perspective, urban land use transformation and modeling, planning for climate change, and approaches that enable communities to make better (more sustainable) decisions. I am the Director of the Illinois Smart Energy Design Assistance Center (SEDAC) and Director of the Landuse Evolution and impact Assessment Model (LEAM) laboratory.
