PSC Honors Archive, 2012


MCubed, a two-year seed-funding program is designed to encourage new multi-disciplinary work among U-M faculty. Among the 50 MCubed award-winners for 2012 (the first wave of funding) are three PSC affiliates. Philippa Clarke's project will analyze how urban-dwelling older people interact with the outside built environment to better understand how to enhance independent mobility. Susan Murphy's project will focus on the development of individualized, real-time adaptive interventions on mobile phones that will be useful in a number of behavior change areas. And the project by Yu Xie and colleagues will develop a carbon capture and storage technology that will increase CO2 sorption and desorption capacities.
