Graduate Pursuit: Cross-scale exploitation patterns and marine population collapse in international seafood markets

 

"Cross-scale exploitation patterns and marine population collapse in international seafood markets"

Seafood is one of the most globalized food commodities with 40% traded internationally. Alarmingly, the majority of global fish stocks are either fully- (58.1%) or over-exploited (31.4%). Case-study evidence has attributed patterns of exploitation and fisheries collapse to globalized trade.

2019 Bayesian Modeling for Socio-Environmental Data Short Course

 

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. Bayesian hierarchical models provide a powerful approach to analysis of socio-environmental problems.

Venture: Integrating Human Risk Perception of Global Climate Change into Dynamic Earth System Models

 

Integrating Human Risk Perception of Global Climate Change into Dynamic Earth System Models

Anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) over the past two centuries have resulted in rapid climate change. Understanding the potential dynamics of the climate system is a critical challenge as GHG emissions continue. We propose to link models of human belief systems concerning risk associated with climate change with models of the ecological and climate systems into a coupled earth system model.

Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes: Using Marine Protected Areas to Investigate Potential Socio-Ecological Impacts of Climate Change in Marine Spatial Planning

Marine  protected  areas  (MPAs)  are  an  important  tool  in  the  context  of  marine  spatial planning  where resources  are  managed  according  to  specific  regulations  that  typically  focus  on conservation and sustainable harvesting.

Beyond the muddy boots: making summer internships count through synthesis workshops

 

It’s a searing summer day on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and in chest-high waders carrying 30 pounds of soil on your back, the humidity is almost unbearable. We have spent long hours in the field and the lab as a budding undergraduate and graduate researchers, wading through wetlands and tromping through fields for the sake of “research.” The question arises in each of us – “Why am I doing this?”
