Shen Qu is a Dow Sustainability Postdoctoral Fellow at SEAS of the University of Michigan. His current research focuses on how environmental risks may impact the global trade network. In particular, he combines tools of input-output analysis and network analysis to uncover the role of international trade in spreading and preventing environmental impacts.
|Nolan||Orfield||Core Staff, Lecturer, Research Associate||
Dr. Orfield is interested in product design and the role that life cycle modeling can play in the creation of products that serve rather than deplete the planet. His background in both entrepreneurship and academic research position him to understand not only the complex interaction between goods and the natural world, but also the design constraints required for commercialization.
