The SURREAL Lab is a group of researchers dedicated to understanding how natural and anthropogenic forces collectively shape our world through computer simulation modelling, data science, and interactive visualization technologies. Our aim is to provide solutions for helping decision-makers build resilient and adaptive landscapes in the face of climate change impacts and uncertainties.

We collaborate with stakeholders and communities on a range of projects, including estimating forest disturbance risk, modelling wildlife movement, and developing interactive web mapping technologies. Our collaborators include government agencies at all levels, local communities, and tech companies.

Unfortunately our lab is at capacity with graduate students and will not be accepting new applicants until Fall 2021.
