Special-TEA Friday, April 28th 2:30pm

Please join us for a talk by Birgit Müller, from the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research in Leipzig, Germany. Her talk will be entitled “Analyzing the impact of policy instruments and global change processes with help of social-ecological modelling.”

Birgit’s research interests focus on: the use of process-based models for an enhanced understanding and governance of social-ecological systems under global change to explore:

  1. Dynamics of social-ecological resource systems with strong focus on grazing systems in drylands
  2. Effects of policy instruments for global food security and for coping with climate risk (such as weather insurances) on social-ecological systems (SES)
  3. Adequate representation of human decisions in agent-based models for natural resource use
  4. Potential of SES models as a tool of thinking and a tool for communication in inter- and transdisciplinary research

You can find more about her research here.

The talk will begin at 2:30pm in Condon 106. Join us at 2pm in Condon 108 for snacks and department announcements.
