Data Science Webinar:  Data Science in Ecology:  Needs and Strategies for Workforce Development (Part 4 in a Series) – REMINDER


The demand for data science in making business, research and policy decisions continues to explode, as does the growing need for data scientists. In partnership with Michigan Tech University, ORAU is hosting a webinar on February 23, 2022, 1:00-2:30 p.m. ET.  The purpose of the webinar is to promote more in-depth dialog on the current and future integration between data science and ecology; including remote sensing, geospatial approaches, environmental monitoring, and modeling and forecasting. Discussions will also focus on key training needs, strategies to strengthen the pipeline of diverse data science professionals, and lessons learned from data science education in higher education.


Topics for this webinar will include:

  • Data Science in Ecology - Opportunities and Workforce Needs
  • Geospatial Data Science in Ecology: Challenges and Strategies for Working with Geospatial Data
  • Data Science Training in Ecology - Graduate Student Perspectives
  • Data Science Training - Best Practices and Lessons Learned from the Data Science Graduate Program at Michigan Tech
