Jason Thistlethwaite is a CIGI senior fellow, as well as assistant professor in the School of Environment, Enterprise and Development in the Faculty of Environment at the University of Waterloo. 

At CIGI, Jason’s research focuses on the global governance of disaster and climate change risk. His research will dive deeper into Canada’s current approach to hazard disclosure in real estate markets, flood risk mapping and the moral hazard surrounding disaster assistance. To inform this research, Jason works directly with business and government leaders in the insurance, banking, real estate, building and investment industries. His research has been published in a number of academic and industry journals, and he is a frequent speaker and media contributor on Canada’s growing vulnerability to extreme weather. Jason holds a Ph.D. in global governance from the Balsillie School of International Affairs.
