In 2016 the Stanford Catalyst for Collaborative Solutions launched a campus-wide effort to encourage new interdisciplinary research projects that would bring together scholars and practitioners from throughout Stanford’s seven schools and beyond to develop bold solutions to some of the world’s most urgent challenges.

The goal was to encourage risk-taking and meaningful collaboration among researchers working on issues in areas such as health care, the environment, autonomy and security, said John Dabiri, director of Catalyst and a professor of engineering.


One of these projects, led by marine biologist Fiorenza Micheli, will use the latest advances in data science to assess risks from the interaction of multiple pressures on oceans, and develop and implement solutions.
