A Note to Prospective ENVS Honors Undergraduate Students
Honors students in our lab work on data analysis and/or mathematical modeling, depending on their interests and relevant coursework. Specific research questions relate to natural resource management, endangered species conservation, or macro-scale links between economies, the environment and society. For example, a previous honors project in our group projected the implications of pessimistic economic growth forecasts for the U.S.’s 21st-century carbon emissions.
