Kenney awarded NSF Research Collaboration Network (RCN) Grant

Dr. Melissa A. Kenney,UMD ESSIC Research Assistant Professor, was awarded an NSF Research Collaboration Network (RCN) grant through the Science, Engineering and Education for Sustainability (SEES) program. The title of the project is: “Sustainable Adaptive Gradients in the Coastal Environment (SAGE): Reconceptualizing the Role of Infrastructure in Resilience.”

The core objective of the SAGE RCN is to develop a transdisciplinary network of researchers and policymakers focusing on the Caribbean and U.S. Northeast that will put forward a shared framework for better informing resilient coastal infrastructure decisions based on physical, natural, and societal conditions.
