Project Center for Advanced Molecular Photovoltaics, Stanford University, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology

Principal Investigator:

CAMP has the goal of making molecular photovoltaics cost competitive with other forms of electricity by developing the science and technology such that cells with efficiencies greater than 15% and lifetimes longer than 10 years can be manufactured at low cost. We make solar cells by depositing polymers from solution, evaporating small molecules and sensitizing titania with dyes.

Project Stanford Project on Cross-border Human Trafficking: China, Myanmar, Thailand

Principal Investigator:

This research is a multidisciplinary study of human migration and human trafficking along China’s shared border with Myanmar and neighboring Thailand, with an emphasis on trafficking of children, bride trafficking, and unsafe labor migration among women and other especially vulnerable groups. Our research provides a detailed examination of the legislative, policy, and agency responses from China, Myanmar and Thailand’s governments as they institute anti-trafficking measures to combat human trafficking across their borders.

Project Long term ecological monitoring of a tropical mountain ecosystem, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais

Principal Investigator:

Geographical distribution of organisms along an altitudinal gradient in the Espinhaço mountains in Brazil. Looking at species biodiversity and species turnover along the altitudinal gradient. Species are sampled twice a year. Groups studied: ants, galling insects, butterflies, bees, plants, microorganisms, free-feeding insect herbivores, beetles, termites. Climate and soil variables are monitored monthly along the gradient. Other studies address changes in phenology, and decomposition in the different habitats throughout the gradient

Project Historical and Archaeological Research on Qiaoxiang (Home Villages) of 19th Century Transpacific Migrants in the Kaiping Diaolou World Heritage Site, Guangdong, China, Stanford University

Principal Investigator:

This collaborative project is a pioneering interdisciplinary study of 19th century qiaoxiang (home village) society and culture in the Pearl River Delta region, Guangdong, China. Emigration from southeastern China is one of the largest and most important population movements during the modern era. Migrants’ home villages developed distinctive cultural and social strategies to stay connected to migrants living abroad.

Project Chinese Railroad Workers in North America Project, Stanford University

Principal Investigator:

Between 1865 and 1869, thousands of Chinese migrants toiled at a grueling pace and in perilous working conditions to help construct America’s first Transcontinental Railroad. The Chinese Railroad Workers in North America Project seeks to give a voice to the Chinese migrants whose labor on the Transcontinental Railroad helped to shape the physical and social landscape of the American West.

Project Market Street Chinatown Archaeology Project, Stanford University

Principal Investigator:

The Market Street Chinatown Archaeology Project is a research and education program developed to catalog, analyze, report, and curate a remarkable collection of artifacts that were excavated in 1985-1988. Once located at the intersections of Market and San Fernando Streets in downtown San José, California, the Market Street Chinatown was founded in the 1860s and occupied until it was burned in an arson fire in 1887.
