August 19th, 2019

Associate Professor Michael Dietze was profiled this month in Science, which highlighted his Ecological Forecasting Initiative as “a grassroots effort to set standards, encourage interdisciplinary approaches, and develop forecasting methods that can be applied to many situations, including fisheries management, wildlife migrations, algal blooms, wildfire patterns, and human disease.”

“EFI specifically aims to tackle cross-cutting challenges that span across the breadth of different forecasting projects,” Professor Dietze told the magazine. “It’s been very exciting to see this community come together so quickly. We have working groups focused on a range of topics, from theory and decision science to diversity and education, as well as developing new tools and cyberinfrastructure.”
