Student Navneet Baidwan recently received two awards for her presentation at the 2015 Research Day at the School of Public Health. Baidwan received the Community Impact and Public Choice awards for her study, "Exploring the phenomenon of open burning of Municipal Solid Waste in three selected neighborhoods of Delhi." Her research explores the various infrastructural and socio-cultural factors that contribute to waste burning in three different Delhi neighborhoods. The study is a collaboration between the Humphrey School and the School of Public Health at the University of Minnesota. 

Another Humphrey School study, which examines mortality and morbidity rates due to air pollution in Delhi between 1991 and 2010, was recently cited by the Huffington Post and the Times of India
