2022 Projects

The 13 projects cover a wide variety of domains, as is characteristic to USIAS. The Fellows include biologists, ecophysiologists and neuroscientists from the life sciences, as well as art historians, literary scholars and philosophers from the fields of social sciences and humanities, and geoscientists, mathematicians and chemists from the natural sciences.
