We believe in and achieve our research goals through collaborations across students and faculty in a manner that recognizes our collective skills, intellectual histories and methodological approaches, and yet encourages our interdependencies as we consider real world problems. Our research concentrations span the natural and social sciences, engineering and public policy fields as each contributes to human development and environmental well being.
