Exploring Environmental Change through Mathematical Modeling [F-21-7]
|Classes:||1 Session 1.5 hours|
|Dates:||Thu 3:00 PM 10/07|
Mathematical modeling has been applied in many different contexts to help solve real-world problems. In this course, we will explore how mathematical modeling may be used to better understand and address environmental challenges. Topics may include tipping points, resilience, and adaption in response to environmental change.
Rebecca Terry is an applied mathematician with research interests in mathematical biology and the mathematics of planet earth. As an undergraduate, she majored in Environmental Studies with Economics. After working in the field of Environmental Economics, she became very interested in how mathematical models may be used in making environmental policy decisions. Her current work explores how populations respond to environmental change.
