Workshop: The Potential of Urban Nature to Support Sustainability in Latin America: A Synthesis from a Socio-Environmental Perspective

 

"The Potential of Urban Nature to Support Sustainability in Latin America: A Synthesis from a Socio-Environmental Perspective"

This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners from Latin America to synthesize the potential of urban nature to support the sustainability of Latin American cities. We propose to use urban forests and trees as a thematic focus to understanding current trends, challenges, and opportunities related to urban nature and sustainability.

Graduate Pursuit: The Globalization of Conservation: How Public Perceptions of Biodiversity and International Trade Patterns Shape Mangrove Conservation

 

"The Globalization of Conservation: How Public Perceptions of Biodiversity and International Trade Patterns Shape Mangrove Conservation"

Although conservation is implemented locally, the forces that shape conservation policy and decision-making are increasingly global. Simultaneously promoting human prosperity while protecting biodiversity requires an understanding of how interactions between global and local forces shape conservation management.

Short Course: 2020 Bayesian Modeling for Socio-Environmental Data

 

Short Course: Interactive Web-Based Visualizations and Decision Support Tools in Shiny/R for Quantitative Scientists

Solutions to pressing environmental problems require understanding connections between human and natural systems. Analysis of these systems requires a model that can deal with complexity, is able to exploit data from multiple sources, and is honest about the uncertainty from multiple sources. Synthesis of results from multiple studies is often required.

Graduate Pursuit: Identifying Socio-Environmental Watershed Typologies Based on Stormwater Pollution Using Machine Learning

 

Identifying Socio-Environmental Watershed Typologies Based on Stormwater Pollution Using Machine Learning

This project represents the first socio-environmental-technological system (SETS) study of the generation of stormwater pollution in urban watersheds across the United States. Urban stormwater pollution poses a major and growing threat to local waterbodies, yet its study and management has consistently ignored the human activities and behaviors that release pollution.

Short Course: Interactive Web-Based Visualizations and Decision Support Tools in Shiny/R for Quantitative Scientists

In trying to close the disconnect between science and decision making, an important challenge is translating scientific findings into interpretable results and tools that decision makers can use. Web applications (in contrast to traditional desktop programs) are particularly useful because they function across platforms, are widely available to and easily accessed by a wide range of us
