We are pleased that Mary Lou Zeeman will be presenting the next talk in the Computational Sustainability Virtual Seminar Series, Friday, April 28, 1:30 EDT, 5:30 PM UTC

Title: "Modeling Challenges in the Food System"

Abstract: We will describe some challenges in food systems and in resilience that might lend themselves to a collaborative approach between computer scientists, mathematicians and domain scientists.  We will also briefly discuss some of the mechanisms that the Mathematics and Climate Research Network has found helpful in creating and sustaining geographically dispersed online working groups and mentoring teams.

Dr. Mary Lou Zeeman uses mathematics within cross-disciplinary research communities to help understand sustainability, climate change, and protecting the health of the planet. Zeeman is a co-director of the Mathematics and Climate Research Network, a member of the executive council of the Computational Sustainability Network, and a co-leader of the Mathematics of Planet Earth Initiative. She is a professor of Mathematics at Bowdoin College.
