Richard Luthy, Silas H. Palmer Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering; Senior Fellow, Woods Institute for the Environment

Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment & Resources

My research interests include physicochemical processes and applied aquatic chemistry with application to waste reduction and treatment, as well as remediation of contaminated soil and sediment. Current projects address the phase partitioning, treatment, and fate of persistent hydrophobic organic compounds.

Michael Mastrandrea, Assistant Consulting Professor, Woods Institute for the Environment; Graduate, PhD 2004

Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment & Resources

My research centers on scientific questions with political and societal implications and their accurate and effective translation for the general public and policy makers in particular. I study climate vulnerability and use impacts assessment as a tool for risk management of climate change. I also explore the implications of climate policy choices given the uncertainty inherent in future projections of climate change and climate impacts.

Douglas McAdam, Professor, Sociology

Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment & Resources

My research focuses on political sociology and social movements. My current projects include an assessment of the long-term civic effects of the Teach For America experience; an analysis of the factors that shape county-level variation in recent arson attacks on U.S. churches; and an ongoing study of neighborhood activism in Chicago between 1970-2005.


Daniel A. McFarland

Daniel A. McFarland, Assoc Professor

Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment & Resources

My current areas of research concern social network analysis, organizations, sociology of knowledge/science, computational social science, microsociology, learning analytics, social ecology, and the sociology of education. 


Michael D. McGehee head shot

Michael D. McGehee, Associate Professor, Materials Science and Engineering; Director, Center for Advanced Molecular Photovoltaics

Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment & Resources

My research focuses on organic electronics, patterning materials at the nanometer length scale and developing materials for renewable energy and sustainability applications.


Head shot of Lynn Meskell

Lynn Meskell, Professor, Anthropology

Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment & Resources

My current research and teaching interests include archaeology and heritage, ethnography in South African, identity and sociopolitics, gender and feminism, and ethics. I view contemporary archaeology as an anthropology of the past, a contextual and nuanced engagement with ancient culture that mirrors the ethnographic project.
