Join Colgate Russian and Eurasian Studies Director and Associate Professor of Geography Jessica Graybill as she discusses her research in Russia, and how climate change is impacting its coastal cities in this episode of 13.
Colgate’s Picker Interdisciplinary Science Institute continues its mission of supporting innovative research with four new grants for 2016. The special funding is designed to help bring together Colgate faculty with outside researchers from around the world in an effort to open new areas of study, and to find creative ways to tackle existing problems.
The news has been inundated with stories about refugees — in the United States and abroad. With a burgeoning refugee community in Utica (approximately one-fourth of the population is made up of refugee families), which is located less than 30 miles from the Colgate campus, students and professors are finding ways to help.
Jessica Graybill, associate professor of geography, is heading to Russia. The winner of a Science and Innovation Fulbright award, Graybill will spend a year studying the social and cultural geographies of climate change in Vladivostok.
