Jason (Jake) Hawes
Jason “Jake” Hawes is a PhD candidate in the School for Environment and Sustainability. Prior to joining the University of Michigan, Jake received a BS in Environmental and Ecological Engineering and an MS in Natural Resources Social Science, both from Purdue University. His previous work centered on coupled natural-human systems of water and water governance, including disaster recovery, adaptation to water scarcity, and community-scale WASH development. At SEAS, Jake is a member of the Urban Sustainability Research Group with Dr. Joshua Newell, studying adaptation in food-energy-water systems. Specifically, his dissertation couples geography-grounded lenses like political-industrial ecology with tools from engineering and spatial sciences to study the role of urban agriculture in future cities.
