Post-meeting Reflection

1+ paragraphs on any combination of the following:

  • Presentation highlights
  • Open questions that came up
  • How your perspective changed
  • Impact on your own work
  • e.g. the discussion on [A] that we are having reminds me of [B] conference/[C] initiative/[D] funding call-for-proposal/[E] research group

I am very grateful that I got a chance to attend this very great meetings and met with great people from a very diverse background, and diverse field of knowledge. I am an economics graduate student, whom before came to this meeting has a very limited knowledge on how broad is the population-climate problem. As I am exposed to the knowledge I received from this very meeting, I now have a sense of more factors that made my mind opened quite larger than before. I now understand that as some more people out there debating on which one to do first from which part of the world and what scientific method to be used, the more effective way to do is to tackle population-climate problem in collaborative scientific methodology, the way this meeting has been set up since the very beginning.

Reference material notes

Some examples:

  • Here is [A] database on [B] that I pull data from to do [C] analysis that might be of interest to this group (insert link).
  • Here is a free tool for calculating [ABC] (insert link)
  • This painting/sculpture/forms of artwork is emblematic to our discussion on [X]!
  • Schwartz et al. 2017 offers a review on [ABC] migration as relate to climatic factors (add the reference as well).

I am currently using a very broad survey data from Indonesia, capturing very broad aspects of households. But the most interesting thing about this data is about children characteristics and migration characteristics from a couple of country such as Indonesia, Malaysia and Mexico. They called Family Life Survey. This survey data is freely available in RAND Corporation site.
