Episode 162 - Bryan Jones, Ph.D. Dan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund are honored to have as our guest, Bryan Jones, Ph.D. Bryan Jones is an Assistant Professor at the Austin W. Marxe School of Public and International Affairs at Baruch College. Additionally, he is an affiliate of the City University of New York Institute for Demographic Research (CIDR), and consultant with the World Bank. Bryan has a Ph.D. in Geography from the University of Colorado-Boulder, and M.A. in Geography from the University of Connecticut. His research interests include population dynamics and migration, climate change impacts, risk/vulnerability assessment, and spatial statistics/GIS. Bryan’s current research explores the relationship between human population dynamics and climate change in driving human vulnerability to climate-related hazards with a focus on sustainability and climate-resilient policy. Much of his current work addresses climate-induced migration. Bryan served as lead modeler for the World Bank's 2018 flagship report Groundswell: Preparing for Internal Climate Migration, and remains engaged with the World Bank, the Center for International Earth Science Information Network at Columbia University (CIESIN), and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) in preparing a series of follow-up reports. In addition to this work, over the past decade he has developed novel methods for producing spatially explicit, high-resolution population scenarios, a crucial input to the assessment of potential climate impacts. Data products developed as a function of this research are currently in use across the global change community, and have informed research cited in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Assessment Reports and the US National Climate Assessment.
