“Water: E2S2- Water: Engineering, Science, Economics, Society Collaborative”
Over the course of the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 academic years, three faculty were hired into this cluster to be part of a university-wide interdisciplinary initiative. The new hires are now working together with colleagues across the University to create interdisciplinary teaching and research opportunities in the various fields of water and water resources. The collaborative for Water and Water Resources: Blue Environment & Economy at URI underscores the identification of faculty with a focus in water resources, supports their scholarship, and solidifies their ongoing commitment in this area.
The following individuals are now assistant professors at URI as a result of the Cluster Hire Initiative. To learn more about each faculty, click on their to view their profile page.
