Four FSE affiliates are among the recipients of new Environmental Venture Projects (EVP) research grants from the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment. The Stanford Woods Institute's EVP seed grant program has spurred cross-disciplinary faculty collaborations that have addressed global environmental and sustainability challenges since 2004.
FSE director Roz Naylor, deputy director David Lobell, and faculty affiliates Marshall Burke and Eran Bendavid will work on several projects over the next two years aimed at finding solutions to these problems.
Naylor will lead a team in modeling the environmental effects of ocean aquaculture on coastal fisheries in China. Naylor is also part of a team that won a grant to study the benefits of marine protected areas in the Adriatic Sea. A team led by Marshall Burke, and including FSE deputy director David Lobell and faculty affiliate Eran Bendavid, will investigate the links between climate change, nutrition and global health.
