Opportunity to join an interdisciplinary sustainability project at U-M!

Hi all, I’m posting to share an international development/sustainability project at U-M that is looking to recruit new collaborators for this year. The interdisciplinary nature of our project and our team is very much in keeping with the MUSE Initiative’s emphasis on fostering interdisciplinary collaborations, so this is an opportunity to get involved in an already existing sustainability project!

The Sustainability Without Borders China team is an interdisciplinary student-run research team working with a local pig farmer in China to: 1) implement new, cost-effective waste management systems and 2) collect survey data on local community members’ perceptions and attitudes toward pig farming.

Last year our team received a $5000 Dow Distinguished seed grant for our interdisciplinary work, and current team members include grad students from SEAS, Engineering, and Psychology. Each year several team members are funded to travel to China and do on-site work with our local partner.

Anyone who has a background or interest in waste management solutions & research is welcome, and we welcome both undergraduate and graduate team members! We are particularly looking for team members who have Chinese language experience, but this is a bonus NOT a must!

Please contact jdliao@umich.edu and lixiliu@umich.edu if you’re interested or to ask us any questions!
