Refine, calibrate, and implement, at select sites within the Cascadia region, the spatially explicit, agent-based, alternative coastal futures forecasting tool, Envision (Bolte et al., 2007; Lipiec et al. 2018; Mills et al 2018).
Process model data output and co-developed coastal community resilience metrics to explore a range of alternative coastal futures.
Develop visualizations of model output to communicate results to a diverse array of coastal stakeholders.
Along with the rest of the postdoctoral scholar cohort involved in the Cascadia CoPes Hub, the Scholar will serve as a Coastal Research Community Liaison to identify additional research needs and support science co-production, translation, and outreach. We see the role of Coastal Research Community Liaison critical to the success of the research conducted by all Hub researchers.
It is expected that this research will lead to one or more published peer reviewed journal articles that will be co-authored by the candidate and mentor as well as other products.
