Lauren Hunt Science to Action Fellow

Lauren Hunt

Detailed Description

The Science to Action Fellowship program supports graduate students in developing a product that puts science into action, directly applying scientific research related to climate change impacts on fish, wildlife, or ecosystems to decision making about natural resources. As a fellow, Lauren will develop a novel vulnerability mapping tool to inform policy and improve climate change adaptation in the West. Such a map will reveal ecosystem and community vulnerabilities to help policy-makers prioritize their efforts. Lauren will use publicly available data, social-ecological science, and data science training to develop a publicly-available, web-based, and interactive product. Lauren’s work will focus on building adaptation capacity and understanding climate vulnerability. Lauren plans to publish the products of this research, including interactive maps and datasets, on the Climate Registry for the Assessment of Vulnerability as a web-based community resource. Laruen will be in the Reston office for two months during the summer of 2019.
