The School of Global Environmental Sustainability (SoGES) at Colorado State University has selected three Global Challenges Research teams with each receiving funding for two years for a total amount of $30,000. These awards are intended to encourage interdisciplinary understanding of complex global sustainability issues, foster collaborative cross-campus partnerships and support sustainability research at CSU.” The Principal Investigators involved in the RISC team are Erin Arneson, Department of Construction Management; Rodolfo Valdes-Vasquez, Department of Construction Management; and Hussam Mahmoud, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. This project will look at the U.S. roofing industry and develop a framework for empirically assessing its resilience. The team will collect data from regional, national, and global roofing industry supply chains and develop a working geospatial model to predict how supply chain disruptions will affect the U.S. roofing industry. The primary objective of this team is to share these findings with the public via an interactive, online map and through published research. Read full article
