Taner Ozdil selected as LAF CSI Research Fellow
March 13, 2013
UT Arlington's Dr. Taner Ozdil is among nine faculty Research Fellows selected for the Landscape Architecture Foundation's 2013 Case Study Investigation (CSI) program.
CSI is a unique research collaboration that matches LAF-funded faculty and student research teams with design firms to document the benefits of exemplary high-performing landscape projects as Landscape Performance Series Case Study Briefs.
Research Fellows lead the CSI collaboration, work with firms to identify performance benefits of select projects, develop evaluation methods, and oversee the case study production process. These select faculty members receive an honorarium and funding to support a student research assistant.
The selection process was highly competitive with applications received from over 20 researchers and 32 firms from across the U.S.
Founded nearly 50 years ago, LAF has been the nexus of inquiry and innovation for the landscape architecture profession. Today, the mission to support the preservation, improvement and enhancement of the environment has never been more resonant. As the world’s population becomes increasingly urban and demands on natural resources more acute, landscape architects play an essential role in solving the complex, interrelated environmental, economic, and social problems we face today.
