Food and energy –– two of the world's most important
resources –– are what fuel the research and fervor of UC Santa
Barbara's first-ever Sustainability Champions.
Cleveland, a professor of environmental studies, and Eric Matthys,
professor of mechanical engineering, the chance to be UCSB faculty
leaders on campus sustainability issues is exciting and brimming with
opportunity. Cleveland has been named the champion for 2009-10, while
Matthys will assume the role for 2010-11...
Thanks to a federal grant, Manjunath's vision of a comprehensive camera
network on the UCSB campus is about to become a reality.
Joining Manjunath in this research project, funded by the Defense
University Research Instrumentation Program, are faculty members Joao
Hespanha, Upamanyu Madhow, and Ken Rose, of electrical and computer
engineering; Tobias Hollerer, Chandra Krintz, Kevin Almeroth, Ambuj
Singh, and Matthew Turk, of computer science; and Francesco Bullo of
