Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Science can help build trust between nations and support foreign policies.
Artem Baklanov applies control theory, game theory, and machine learning to informed environmental decision making. More
Peter Bednarik has designed a computer game based on the forestry sector, and is using it to investigate the conditions under which a “tragedy of the commons” would be avoided. More
Edward Byers investigates the impacts and risks of climate change on energy systems and infrastructure at a global scale to identify hotspots of risk. More
Fulvio Di Fulvio focuses on mapping global forest resources and calculating the costs of supplying wood biomass for both material and energy uses. More
Adam French examined the potential for watersheds in the water-stressed Global South to switch to Integrated Water Resource Management—an integrated, multi-sectoral form of water governance. More
Fei Guo uses a bottom-up mathematical model to project energy consumption in residential buildings in China, and to simulate intervention effects of incentive policies. More
Daniel Jessie is introducing a new mathematical approach to understanding the nature of dynamical network processes where standard mathematical tools can only provide analytical solutions in the simplest cases. More
Luzma Fabiola Nava Jiménez examined the water governance regime in river basins which cross the USA/Mexico border. More
Mia Landauer studies the implications of loss and damage from climate change, and participatory governance of infrastructure project deployment in the Arctic. More
Luciano Mendes embarked on two projects linked to reducing agricultural pollution and optimizing resource use on farms. More
Sennai Mesfun studies the impact of prolonged adverse weather events in power systems with high share of renewable sources. More
Piera Patrizio uses spatially explicit models to explore the economic feasibility of the industrial sector investing in carbon mitigation solutions. More
Henrik Sjödin uses mathematical models to show how migration between groups can transform simple, non-cooperative communities into highly cooperative ones. More
Matthias Wildemeersch studies the dynamic behavior of large-scale, complex networks by applying tools from probability theory, control, and network science. More
Sam Hyun Yoo demonstrated that delayed childbearing as well as a reduced number of births per woman is affecting fertility in the Republic of Korea. More
Shaohui Zhang examines energy efficiency improvements in Chinese industry at various scales, and the resultant emissions savings. More
