Climate+ Returns for its Second Summer
Climate+, an intensive 10-week research program, returns for its second summer in 2023. Kyle Bradbury, director of the Energy Data Analytics Lab at the Nicholas Institute and a faculty member at the Pratt School of Engineering and Nicholas School of the Environment, spoke with The Chronicle, Duke's student newspaper, about the program.
“We started Climate+ as a way to grow the number of interdisciplinary climate research opportunities for students on campus, building on the existing successful experiential framework of the Data+ program,” Bradbury told The Chronicle. “We’re seeking to build a community of student-practitioners eager to contribute to solutions regarding the climate and energy system challenges of our time.”
In keeping with the Duke Climate Commitment, Climate+ unites undergraduate and graduate students from across the university to use data science to take on local, state, and regional sustainability, climate change, and energy-related issues.
