I shared some news items last Friday, but here’s one that I missed. Tufts Collaborates is a program to foster collaboration among professors in different (and sometimes far-flung) areas of the university. For the coming year, Fletcher faculty members will be involved in three of the projects that received seed grant funding. The projects are:
EduNet: A Low Cost Communication Infrastructure to Improve Education in Developing Countries: Jenny Aker, Fletcher School, and Fahad Dogar, School of Engineering.
Effect of Climate Change on Household Drinking Water Access in Sub-Saharan Africa: Avery Cohn, Fletcher School, and Amy Pickering, School of Engineering, with Graham Jeffries from Fletcher (Professor Cohn’s research assistant).
Challenging Conceptions: Children Born of Wartime Rape and Sexual Exploitation: Kimberly Theidon, Fletcher School, with Dyan Mazurana, Fletcher School and Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy.
