Tufts Institute of the Environment is excited to announce our 14 new TIE Fellows and 2 TIE-SEI Interns!
The TIE Environmental Research Fellowship program, which supports and funds projects across disciplines, provides graduate students at Tufts the opportunity to conduct independent and interdisciplinary environmental research. This is an opportunity for students to explore topics relating to their focus area and obtain mentorship from Tufts faculty and TIE staff to help build expertise.
This year’s Fellows come from a variety of backgrounds, representing multiple Tufts schools, such as the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, the Graduate School of Engineering, and the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. This year’s Fellows are combining their intellectual curiosity with the amazing TIE network and Tufts resources in order to answer a fascinating set of research questions which will add to the global research body encompassing issues related to the environment.
TIE is also thrilled to welcome the two new TIE-SEI Interns, Sally Williams of the Friedman School and Leah Finsie of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, who will work on projects with TIE’s longtime partner, the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI). The TIE-SEI Internship, a collaborative effort between the two partners, offers two students the opportunity to conduct research and collaborate with SEI researchers on a specific project and assist with the development of sustainable environmental policy. Sally will be working on USAID Regional Water and Vulnerable Environment Activity and Leah will be working on Sustainable Bioenergy and Development: Forest Carbon.
Congratulations and welcome to the new TIE Fellows and TIE-SEI Interns! See the full cohort and their project focuses here.
