Title: Mathematical Models from Soil to Satellite: Fulbright Adventures in Finland

Abstract: The Fulbright program supports students and faculty to engage in international exchanges and scholarship abroad. Last year I was fortunate to travel abroad with my family (even during a pandemic!) to Finland on a project that developed mathematical models for soil carbon following forest fires. This project involved an interesting mix of mathematics, data science, and some extra persistence and perseverance. This talk will describe some of the lessons learned from Finland, describe the project results, and provide perspectives on how ecological data informs mathematical models.
