Howes   

Dr. Brian Howes is the director of the Massachusetts Estuaries Project, a partnership between the University, Commonwealth, local communities, and environmental organizations that is striving to build sustainable plans to save the Cape Cod and SouthCoast coastline from degradation caused by too much development. Students like Jennifer Benson, who is conducting her own research, have contributed thousands of hours to the project and upon graduation have become valuable resources in the never-ending mission to achieve balance between economic and environmental interests.
