Vivek Shandas, Urban Studies and Planning faculty, and David Sailor, Mechanical and Materials Engineering faculty, won a $1 million grant to establish a Middle East center for the study of urban sustainability. Using Doha, Qatar, as a case study, Shandas and Sailor will work with faculty from Qatar University to understand urban climate systems, social and biophysical scaling processes, and decision making systems.
