Thinking Across Departments

This month Zane Havens will host the GRF Open House.  Attendees will get to discuss Zane’s research and look for connections to their own work. Lunch will be provided (registration requested).

Zane is a Ph.D. student in Environmental Sciences where his research focuses on resilient design in structures and systems. Zane is currently exploring the feasibility of amphibious-building technology to mitigate the flooding of buildings and infrastructure. This discussion will be especially engaging to researchers interested in coastal engineering, adaptive policy implementation, engineering design theory, and the intersects between structural, social, environmental, and institutional resilience. 

The Environmental Resilience Institute hosts monthly Open House sessions for graduate students interested in discussing their research with other students from around Grounds working on environmental resilience related topics. Our Open House events are part of the student-led, ERI supported, Graduate Research Forum (GRF).

The GRF is open to all grad students and invests in activities that advance novel frameworks, theories, models, and applications that are transformative and have societal impacts.  We hope you can attend this and other GRF events!
