Richard Barnes

Algorithms for, and Applications of, Global Terrain Analysis (PhD ’20) Richard applies computational and mathematical techniques to better understand the complex interface of society and the environment. His work includes developing (a) in silico models to exlore ecoevolutionary interactions over long time scales and (b) high-speed algorithms for understanding landscape use and evolution. A recipient of both the DOE CSGF and the NSF GRFP fellowships, he holds a M.S. in Ecology, B.S. in Physics, and a B.A. in Philosophy from the University of Minnesota. Publications Links Contact:
