Assistant professor Ethan Yang (second from left) leads an international, five-institution collaboration to better understand the global confluence of society’s needs for food, energy, and water.

A Few Good Collaborators

Creating quantitative and computational modeling of complex food, energy and water (FEW) systems is the focus of a four-year, $500,000 grant that Lehigh Civil and Environmental Engineering Assistant Professor Ethan Yang and an international team of colleagues from several institutions across the United States and China have been awarded by the National Science Foundation.

Living in a materials world

Solving the most urgent problems facing society in many cases will depend on finding new ways to crack the secrets of these stubborn substances. That is the inspiration for the launch of the new Institute for Functional Materials & Devices (I-FMD), one of three new Interdisciplinary Research Institutes (IRIs) that create communities of scholars and catalyze crucial research in areas where Lehigh is poised to make lasting societal contributions.
