Six faculty cluster hire
The College of Arts and Sciences, School of Engineering and Applied Science, and School of Architecture recently completed a six-faculty cluster hire in Environmental Resilience. We are very pleased to have the following faculty join the university.
Scott Doney is the Joe D. and Helen J. Kington Professor in Environmental Change. His research focuses on ocean biogeochemistry and the coupling with the global climate system. He is a prominent scientist with interests in climate change signals such as ocean warming, sea-ice loss, and ocean acidification due to the invasion of carbon dioxide from fossil fuel burning.
Larry Band is the Ernest Ern Professor of Environmental Science and Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering. His current research emphasis is on the design, analysis and simulation of green infrastructure on urban ecosystems and human well being, and the development of computational tools to facilitate collaborative and participatory research, management and design for watershed restoration.
Leidy Klotz’s research merges engineering and social science to create more sustainable and resilient built environments. He is an Associate Professor jointly in Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Architecture.
Jonathan Colmer is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics. His research explores ways in which the environment shapes economic behavior, and vice versa.
Shiran Shen is a political scientist whose research explores how incentives shape environmental politics, especially in China and India, and spans multiple disciplinary sub-fields.
