ACSF Tops 400 Fellows
Renewable energy. Climate change. Water management. Food security. Rural development. The Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future’s 2014 class of faculty fellows includes leading experts in these and many other urgent areas of sustainability research.
This infographic shows the spread of the new faculty fellows across campus and around the world.
Fifty Cornell faculty joined the Atkinson Center this fall, bringing the total number of ACSF faculty fellows to 410. Representing six colleges and institutes and 32 departments, our newest faculty fellows connect ACSF with innovative sustainability research across Cornell. The new fellows include a biofuels expert engineering renewable substitutes for liquid fossil fuels, an economist who helps New York farmers manage their businesses, an anthropologist working with Himalayan ethnic groups as they adapt to economic and social change, and a zoologist specializing in infectious diseases in free-range and captive wildlife.
The Atkinson Center welcomed new and returning faculty fellows at the third annual ACSF faculty fellows celebration, held at the Lab of Ornithology on August 28. The evening featured a presentation by Drew Harvell on the sea star die-off, music by the Middle Eastern music group Taqsim, and a caption contest.
