This fellowship supports developing and implementing innovative ideas in pursuit of sustainability. Vedrin will begin this two year fellowship in September 2017, and will be utilizing it to support his doctoral degree. In addition to receiving funding, Dow fellows participate in a series of cohort-building activities designed to expand individual understanding and effectiveness through regular engagement across a wide range of disciplinary perspectives.

Prior to starting the Environmental Engineering Doctoral degree in January 2017, Vedrin earned a master’s degree in Design Science from U-M (FA 2016).

Vedrin is advised by Professors Lut Raskin (CEE) and Rebecca Hardin (NRE). His research topic is: “Impacts of WASH educational interventions on behavior change in an urban environment in Gabon.”
