Interested in meeting facilitation, but unsure where to start? Check out our new guide, which introduces approaches and practices we use at SESYNC in facilitating synthesis meetings, trainings, and workshops to help improve teamwork processes.
In the second video of the "Introduction to Spatial Agent-Based Models (ABMs)" series, Dr. Nick Magliocca discusses the core components of an ABM; how they work; and applications that illustrate the flexibility of ABMs.
While we were glad to see 2020 come to an end, our postdoctoral fellows still managed to accomplish some impressive feats during the past year—especially while working from home. As we look forward to the new year ahead and a fresh beginning, we asked the SESYNC postdocs to share something they’re looking forward to in 2021 and/or a recent achievement that they're proud of. See what they have to say below:
