2022 Recipient

Chloe Angst (Anthropology) will be working (with faculty member Jodie Warren in Justice Studies) on a decomposition study that is intended to help forensically investigate homeless deaths in our region.  The HRI will be able to assist in disseminating her research to the City of San José City Council, Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors, and other appropriate public agencies such that it guides public research and policy discussions regarding the rising fatality rate among homeless populations in the Bay Area (noted in the SVPI).

Please look for an update on this research project here in spring 2023.
