Agent- and Individual-Based Computational Modeling
This course (for undergraduate and graduate students) introduces agent-based and individual-based computational modeling with applications to ecological, social, and behavioral sciences and engineering. It covers designing and programming models and using the mnodels to conduct experiments.
Data Science Methods for Smart City Applications
A University Course offered under the auspices of the Vanderbilt Strategic Plan, this team-taught, project-based course will integrate technological and socio-economic approaches to challenges facing metropolitan areas experiencing unprecedented growth. It will address the infrastructure and resources needed for sustainable development and to maintain quality of life.
Global Climate Change
This course, for undergraduate and graduate students, has three major parts:
The basic scientific principles of the earth’s climate.
Impacts and possible responses to climate change.
The politics of climate change.
A laboratory section gives students a chance to analyze climate data and work with interactive computer models of the climate system.
