Dr. Magliocca is an Assistant Research Professor at SESYNC. His research combines synthesis methods and agent-based models to investigate the dynamics of human-environment interactions and their consequences for environmental and economic sustainability. A current project is investigating adaptive responses within the Baltimore-Washington region to repeated hurricane and heat waves through the integration of an agent-based model of land-use change with a larger, integrated hazards, impacts, and resilience model. Nick will also continue work with the GLOBE project, which developed an online collaborative environment that enables land change scientists and researchers to synthesize and integrate local and regional case studies to assess the global relevance of their work. At SESYNC, Nick provides simulation modeling and data analysis and usage support for funded projects. Nick received his PhD in Geography and Environmental Systems from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County in fall 2012 where he was a National Science Foundation IGERT fellow. He also holds a MS in Environmental Management from Duke University and a BS in Environmental Systems: Ecology, Behavior, and Evolution from the University of California, San Diego.
