AGCI Workshop Participation
September 13, 2015 to September 18, 2015
"Joshua Elliott works on a variety of topics at the interface of global change, environmental, and social sciences through applied modeling and computational projects. He leads teams at the center for Robust Decision-making in Climate and Energy Policy (RDCEP) and in the Agricultural Modeling Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP; e.g. Ag-GRID). He currently runs several projects designed to improve global change Vulnerability, Impact, and Adaptation (VIA) assessments and tools (primarily in agriculture and forestry) using large-scale high-resolution models enabled by high-performance computing. He also works on predictions of agricultural production at seasonal time scales, the effects of large-scale extreme events (such as droughts and heat waves), and with socio-economic modeling and scenario analysis in the context of integrated assessment models. He received his PhD in high-energy theoretical particle physics from McGill University in 2008. He has been with the Computation Institute since Fall 2008.
AGCI has become an intellectual proving ground, a ferment for new ideas and concepts, and a place where the different disciplines actually talk, and progress. Hal Harvey
What We Do
AGCI has been the most prominent place for developing interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary dialogues between scientists and practitioners.Guy Brasseur
We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims. R. Buckminster Fuller
