Abe Fellowship Award 2014-2016

I am a recipient of the Abe Fellowship (2014-16) from the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) in collaboration with the American Council of Learned Societies and with funding from The Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership. This year the SSRC received 90+ applications and awarded 12 fellowships. The fellowship provides research support that will allow me to continue my work in Japan on land-use change adaptation that I began in 2012 with the JSPS fellowship (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science Fellowship) following the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. My research project is titled, Planning Urban Recovery and Resilience: Comparing Land Use Policy and Adaptation Initiatives After Catastrophic Events. More information about the fellowship itself is available at Abe Fellowship.
