2022 Fulbright-EPA awards
This page lists the 2022 Fulbright-EPA awards.
There were two 2022 awards:
- Dr Nuala Flood is a Senior Lecturer in Architecture at Queen’s University Belfast. Her research focuses on codesign methods for spatial adaptation to global heating. As a Fulbright-EPA Scholar, Nuala will work with the Urban Systems Lab (Parsons School of Design). Her research will explore the pedagogy and practice of spatial design for resilience in the New York City region. This low-lying coastal city is extremely vulnerable to sea level rise and it has taken a distinctly spatial and design-based approach in futureproofing itself.
- Andrew Neill is a PhD student in the Botany Department, School of Natural Sciences at Trinity College Dublin. He holds an M.Sc. in Development Practice from a dual UCD-TCD program and has spent time working on environmental projects in Ireland, Fiji, and Luxembourg. His PhD research is part of the SFI funded BiOrbic bioeconomy research centre and explores the impacts and dependencies between people and nature. As a Fulbright-EPA Student Awardee to the Natural Capital Project at Stanford University, Andrew will investigate ecosystem service modelling—an approach that shows how the environment provides benefits to people, and how this can support future decision-making.
