Yong Tao, chair of UNT's Department of Mechanical and Energy Engineering, has received a prestigious National Science Foundation grant to identify gaps in sustainability knowledge and better understand human behavior related to sustainability.
Tao received $652,846 as part of the National Science Foundation’s Research Coordination Networks – Science, Engineering and Education for Sustainability program. The project will bring together about a dozen researchers who focus on sustainability from engineering, construction, computer science, environmental science, business, architecture and social science backgrounds. The researchers have experience and access to data from various sustainable building projects, and will work together to identify and fill in knowledge gaps.
