Systems Fellows Program

The Systems Fellows Program supports graduate students who want to participate in the convergence of knowledge and expertise from diverse disciplines to identify, formulate, and address a complex system problem. This approach requires faculty and students to explore research questions at the intersection of their respective fields, conduct joint research projects, and develop methodologies that can be used to re-integrate knowledge in pursuit of a new science of systems.
See the attached Call for Nominations for more details about this program. Also, for more information about previous Systems Fellows and their research projects, you can visit the Systems Fellows homepage.
