    Abstract:

    This policy brief was developed to assist decision-making in the field of international development on when and how to best utilize data science methods. It is meant to assist all levels of decision-making (from the field to the boardroom) as well as development actors (from donors to community-level NGOs). This general applicability stems from a research focus on general principles and processes that can be adapted as needed. The recommendations include a general decision-making process that…

    Abstract:

    Climate change has been slow to enter the public dialogue in the Midwest, but this is changing as local residents are experiencing more volatile weather, extreme temperatures, floods, changing growing seasons, and fewer snow days. The past several decades have witnessed increasingly intense weather extremes, resulting in costly damage throughout the region. In 2019, following a winter arctic air outbreak (“polar vortex”) that delivered near-record low temperatures in many areas (for example, …

    Abstract:

    The 2020 election has the potential to be one of the most momentous in modern American history. Challenges to the integrity of the electoral process, threats of violence from extremist groups, and most alarmingly, President Donald Trump’s repeated refusal to guarantee a peaceful power transfer should he lose have created a climate of uncertainty about the election and its aftermath, with worrisome implications for the long-term health of American democracy.

    While these circumstances are unpr…

    Abstract:

    Obesity rates in the U.S. for both children and adults are alarmingly high, particularly for those in low-income households. The current project, a partnership between Elkhart and St. Joseph Counties Head Start Consortium and the University of Notre Dame’s William J. Shaw Center for Children and Families, focused on reducing obesogenic home environments for low-income families. Focusing on home environments, particularly for young children, is important because research shows that mothers are…
