Geography's John-Michael Davis awarded SSHRC PhD Fellowship
John-Michael Davis, currently doing his PhD under the supervision of Drs. Yaakov Garb and Josh Lepawsky, has been awarded a PhD Fellowship through the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. John-Michael’s innovative research focuses on transboundary trade of electronic waste (e-waste). His research focuses on two case studies: movement of e-waste between Israel and Palestine, and the possibilities and issues involved in generating transboundary e-waste trade to El Salvador. There are numerous aspects involved along any potential road to the development of international “fair e-waste trade”. As e-waste production continues to grow, John-Michael’s work will be of interest worldwide. All of us in Geography congratulate John-Michael and look forward to seeing the results of his research!
