The STE Lab conducts ongoing environmental policy research in several key areas including the globaltrade and exchange of genetic resources, adoption and use of alternative fuel vehicles and voluntary environmental behavior of public and private organizations. Although funding sources vary, the most recent project on genetic resources is funded by the National Institutes of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) at the US Department of Agriculture, and the National Institutes of Health. Lab personnel involved in current projects include Drs. Aseffa Wedajoo and Eric Welch.
