I am currently doing research in the use of scenario development and integrated modeling as applied to social-ecological systems. My recent work has focused on applying these to issues related to climate change economics and policy, including new technologies for greenhouse gas removal and solar radiation management. As a new faculty member, I look forward to exploring opportunities to work with, among other groups, the Institute for a Sustainable Earth and the Center for Social Complexity.
Prof. Rothman teaches the introductory courses on Computational Social Sciences at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as beginning and advanced courses in modeling and simulation. He has more than 20 years of experience teaching and advising students in systems thinking, scenario development, simulation, and ecological economics.
