Advancing policy, economic, and technological solutions that support sustainable water systems and water use behavior in California.
Supporting the transition to electric-drive, alternative-fuel, and autonomous vehicles through innovative research and decision support.
Enhancing the role of information and communications technologies in the 21st century.
Strengthening state and local governments' capacity to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to climate change.

The Luskin Scholars represent UCLA's most intellectually talented and civically-minded faculty who are selected to lead center research initiatives. They represent a broad spectrum of disciplines including business, chemistry, public health, engineering, economics, and public policy.  These Scholars work closely with leaders in public office, in community organizations, at non-profit institutions, and in the business sector to direct research to fill knowledge gaps on current public issues. They are applying their expertise to the foremost environmental issues of our region: business and the environment, clean technology, climate change, green chemistry, smart water systems, and sustainable renewable energy.
