Alex Zvoleff is a student in the Joint Doctoral Program in Geography at San Diego State University and University of California, Santa Barbara. He is working on new approaches for understanding coupled human-natural systems. Alex began his work on the PIRE project in fall of 2008, and is developing an agent-based model to investigate reciprocal connections between social and environmental change in the Chitwan Valley. A preliminary version of the model has been completed, and was disussed at the 2009 PIRE meeting (see links below to download the model). The finished model will incorporate both extensive research by PIRE collaborators and others, as well as new data that Alex will be collecting in the field.
