Attend on Zoom
Desert ecosystems are vital to life on Earth, and yet these systems remain poorly understood. Join us for the Earth Day edition of the New Discoveries Lecture Series to learn how interdisciplinary research merging engineering and ecosystem science is being used to explore critical questions about the future of desert ecosystems on our changing Earth.
Adam Elmachtoub is an associate professor of industrial engineering and operations research at Colombia University and a member of the Data Science Institute. In this lecture Elmachtoub will delve into the connection between operations problems and prediction problems.
