Research

The Yale Climate & Energy Institute is a nexus for integrating the interdisciplinary efforts of scientists, engineers, architects, social scientists, and policy makers.  Research associated with YCEI draws on expertise in:

    Atmospheric, Ocean, and Climate Science
    Mechanical, Chemical, and Environmental Engineering
    Chemistry
    Geology and Geophysics
    Ecosystem Ecology
    Population Dynamics
    Infectious Disease and Public Health
    Economic Forecasting
    Architecture and Design
    Urbanization
    Policy

Funded projects and Fellowships are designed to promote collaborations that transcend traditional research boundaries and to encourage multi-disciplinary teams to seek external funding. The resulting projects have focused on issues ranging from soil ecology to ancient temperature reconstruction to improved rural cookstoves. YCEI programs and initiatives also serve to cluster research around specific topics, including Climate and Health, Urbanization, and Unconventional Resources.
