Mathematical biologist, Chris Bauch, thrives in working across scholarly fields and has created a research program centred on applying mathematics to real-world problems in infectious diseases, ecology, social science and sustainability. In a recent study, Bauch and his colleagues, Tom Bury and Madhur Anand, explored the interactions between climate models and social learning. This research highlights how social norms and the ways in which people learn about emission reduction strategies can ultimately influence climate outcomes. Bauch’s interdisciplinary approach to research demonstrates how climate change can be tackled from almost any angle.
