Researchers

As part of its Faculty Fellows Program, SyracuseCoE offers support to faculty researchers at Syracuse University, SUNY-ESF, and other universities in SyracuseCoE’s core focus areas: clean and renewable energy, indoor environmental quality, and water resources. The following faculty members have been closely engaged in research with SyracuseCoE and have been designated as Faculty Fellows.

 

The awards were made possible by funding to support SyracuseCoE activities awarded by Empire State Development’s Division of Science, Technology, and Innovation (NYSTAR). Read more about the 2017 SyracuseCoE Faculty Fellows on our news page.
