During the first 18 months of operation, FIBER faculty have built new partnerships and proposed new research. Concurrently, FIBER faculty engaged in a strategic planning effort to begin framing the collective voice and direction of the institute. The following five research themes emerged from these strategic conversations, and from the individual efforts of FIBER faculty.
We note that all FIBER faculty research is not represented here, however these six themes represent aspirational directions of FIBER faculty and the institute broadly. The themes are at varying stages of development, although most are recently conceived. More than where our faculty have been, these research themes represent directions we plan to pursue in the coming 3-5 years.
