The Carbon Mitigation Initiative - Stephen W. Pacala is co-director of the Princeton Carbon Mitigation Initiative (CMI). CMI participants seek to attain a novel synergy across fundamental science, technological development, and business principles that accelerates the pace of discovery, from proof of concept to scalable application, to lead the way to a compelling and sustainable solution of the carbon and climate change problem.
Princeton Environmental Institute - The seeds of the Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI) were planted in the late 1960s and early 1970s as the world grew increasingly aware of the environmental consequences of industrialization. At PEI, we approach today’s environmental challenges from multiple dimensions: the scientific, technical, policy, and human. We not only seek technical solutions, such as carbon capture and sequestration, but also to understand all pieces of the global change puzzle including: loss of biodiversity; the spread diseases; the extreme weather events; the economic damages or the ethical implications of distributing environmental impacts among more wealthy and disadvantaged populations.
Department of EEB - In 1990 the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology was created. Since then we have grown and now consist of 18 faculty, approximately 36 graduate students, 38 postdoctoral fellows, and about 100 undergraduate concentrators. EEB integrates the study of biology across scales of space, time and organizational complexity, seeking to understand on ecological and evolutionary scales how organisms, populations and ecosystems operate.
Climate Central - An independent organization of leading scientists and journalists researching and reporting the facts about our changing climate and its impact on the public. Our scientists publish and our journalists report on climate science, energy, sea level rise, wildfires, drought, and related topics.
Theoretical Ecology Lab Tea - The Theoretical Ecology Lab Teas are informal meetings where members of affiliated lab groups (Levin lab, Pacala lab, Tarnita lab) give talks on their current research and receive feedback from their audience. Talks are 30 minutes long and are followed by questions and discussion. Lab Tea typically meets Wednesdays at 12:30 pm during the fall and spring semesters.
