Computational sustainability: a modern collaborative approach to sustainable development

Last month Amid Sedghi from SFU Carbon Talks interviewed me for an article on computational sustainability. He has now posted his article called “Computational sustainability: a modern collaborative approach to sustainable development” which can be viewed here.

For those of you who would like to know what computational sustainability is the Institute for Computational Sustainability (ICS) defines it as:

Computational Sustainability is an interdisciplinary field that aims to apply techniques from computer science, information science, operations research, applied mathematics, and statistics for balancing environmental, economic, and societal needs for sustainable development.

Focus: developing computational and mathematical models and methods for decision making concerning the management and allocation of resources in order to help solve some of the most challenging problems related to sustainability.
