This project aims to use crowdsourcing and human computation to help discover new intermetallic compounds that can be used for more environmentally friendly, sustainable, and economical fuel cells, batteries, solar fuel generation, etc.
This is a citizen science project monitoring the incidence of a sea star wasting disease. Recent outbreaks have been observed along much of the Pacific coast of North America since 2013.
We are trying to understand whether there is a temperature threshold or some other environmental conditions associated with outbreak and non-outbreak sites.
We are developing a crowdsourcing system where pastoralists contribute photos and expert assessments of rangeland conditions, which will be used better interpret readily available data collected by satellites.
A better real-time understanding of environmental conditions will help us make policy recommendations, as well as provide better services such as Index-Based Livestock Insurance.
