With a shared passion for the planet and research around climate change, VoLo Foundation supports The Courant Institute and made a five year commitment in 2020 to support a doctoral fellow at NYU’s Courant’s Center for Atmosphere Ocean Science (CAOS). The fellow will work alongside Dr. Laure Zanna to sharpen the understanding of coastal sea level change along the Gulf of Mexico and the U.S. East Coast.
VoLo Foundation trustee, David S. Vogel, said this about the partnership, “Understanding sea level change is critical to climate focused solutions. My family and I consider it an honor to give to this important initiative. With the growing awareness of the threat from rising seas, these findings will benefit researchers for years to come and could lead to solutions for slowing sea level rise. To support this work at my alma-mater, and even my parent’s alma-mater, creates generational impact. My wife -Thais Lopez Vogel- and I, through VoLo Foundation, are proud to partner with NYU to make it happen.”
