The first recipient of the School of Architecture and Planning’s Jerome L. Kaufman Doctoral Fellowship is presented to Subhashni Raj. She is a Fulbright scholar and climate activist who will start her PhD this upcoming Fall. She will continue working with the Food Systems and Healthy Communities Lab under the guidance of Dr. Samina Raja, UB Associate Professor of Urban and Regional Planning.
This fellowship was inspired by Jerome Kaufman, a University of Wisconsin-Madison professor who created the field of food systems within the field of planning. Without his support, innovative research, and commitment to the community, the idea of food systems would not have been possible.
