Collaborate with health officials, scientists, community organizations, and residents of Paraguay to initiate a culturally-tailored set of programs and strategies aimed at reducing noncommunicable diseases in Paraguay. This program is part of the Stanford Healthy Aging & Technology Solutions (HARTS) laboratory's "borderless health promotion" initiative.
Obesity prevention in socioeconomically disadvantaged women and children
We have partnered with SinoProbe, the Chinese national scientific program led by CAGS (Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences) to study the lithosphere. We are helping to design experiments and analyze and interpret the resultant near-vertical and wide-angle seismic profiles across the Karakoram Fault (and elsewhere in Tibet).
HIMPROBE is an Indian national project, active since 2000, to create a NW-Himalayan geotransect from the Sub-Himalaya to the Karakoram Range. Framework broadband seismology, broadband MT, the first phase of seismic reflection, and a comprehensive potential-field transect have already been conducted.
