Team members earn fellowships

IGERT Trainee Raha Hakimdavar was recently awarded a Fulbright Scholarship sponsored by the Netherlands America Foundation (NAF), a bilateral group that supports educational, cultural, and business exchange between the Netherlands and the United States. Raha will study flood management issues during her year away from Columbia University. An IGERT Associate, Xiaoqi Xu has received the Harvard Giorgio Ruffolo Post-doctoral Research Fellowship in Sustainability Science, and will be joining Harvard Kennedy School's Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government and the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs's Energy Technology Innovation Policy group upon graduation this year. She found the IGERT Brown Bag Seminars to be extremely helpful in giving her more exposure to urbanization, that she believed made her competitive for the Fellowship.
