Three CEE Grad Students Receive PEI-STEP fellowships
The department is happy to announce that three (3) of our graduate students, Carole Dalin, Hang Deng and Mary Kang, will each receive a PEI-STEP fellowship within the Princeton Environmental Institute. The students were selected by the PEI-STEP Selection Committee based on their submitted research proposals. The committee is pleased to support the development of the environmental policy implications of their graduate research.
Carole Dalin, a student of Professor Ignacio Rodriquez-Iturbe, submitted a proposal titled "Promoting Environmentally Sustainable Agriculture Productivity in China Through Water Management and Agricultural Policies". Funding associated with her fellowship is generously provided by the Thomas Jefferson Perkins Class of 1894 Graduate Fellowship fund.
Hang Deng, a studen to Professor Catherine Peters, submitted a proposal entitled "Incorporation of CCS - and Nuclear Energy Related Risks in Current Energy Economic Model and its Implications to Energy Policy". Her funding is generously provided by the William Clay Ford, Jr '79 and Lisa Vanderzee Ford '82 Graduate Fellowship fund.
Mary Kang, a student of Professor Michael Celia, submitted her proposal titled "Methane Leakage Due to Hydraulic Fracturing Operations: Exploring Technical and Policy Mitigation Options". Funding for Mary is generously provided by the Thomas Jefferson Perkins Class of 1894 Graduate Fellowship fund.
Congratulations to all three on getting their proposals funded.
