Enjoyed a great seminar today by Jenn Thompson on “Co-producing sustainable food systems: A transdisciplinary and participatory approach”

Here, Jenn reminds us that interdisciplinary advances occur in the spaces where we begin to get uncomfortable.

I wasn't familiar with the work of Freeth and Caniglia, but I look forward to learning more about it.

Pleased to share our latest semi-parametric model for disease forecasting and scenario analysis. The model uses embedded curve-fitting to adapt to changing conditions but in the context of the familiar compartmental approach to modeling. Application is to COVID-19.

It's finally fall in Georgia and that means a lab hike. This time it was the Rhododendron Trail and Chenocetah Mountain in the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest.
