Mohammad Farmani, HAS PhD Student and participant of the Roots for Resilience (R4R) Program, will make an R4R program presentation to the HAS community on Wednesday, November 22, from 3-4pm.
The Roots for Resilience Program provides training and support to select graduate students on open, reproducible science and computational infrastructure to enhance research focused on resiliency in the environment.
Much as roots anchor plants and ecosystems, data are the roots of science and discovery. The Roots for Resilience research fellowship program in data science is led by the Arizona Institute for Resilience (AIR), CyVerse, and the Data Science Institute (DSI). The program trains select graduate students in the use of open science and computational infrastructure to apply data science tools to their dissertation’s research and discovery and to increase their department’s data science capacity.
AIR is interested in fostering new interdisciplinary research partnerships leading to new proposals for external funding that take advantage of the strengths in UArizona data science and resilience-based research to address challenges facing human and natural communities. By training graduate student fellows as department-level ambassadors of information exchange, R4R aims to educate the AIR departments on the capabilities and possibilities offered by CyVerse and DSI while brokering new research areas in which data science tools play a strong role.
Everyone is invited to attend the presentation via Zoom (see email announcement of 11/20 for link).
