Working Groups

Environment and Climate


The environment and climate working group aims to address environmental challenges, particularly those that exacerbate the climate crisis, through the lens of computational and economic lenses. We are a diverse group of researchers from a variety of academic disciplines and geographic locations.

Syllabus for Fall 2022


We plan to cover a wide breadth of topics, focusing on providing a platform for members to share their research and receive feedback from others.
 

If you are looking to join our working group, please reach out to one of the co-organizers.
