Ty Tuff

Dr. Ty Tuff is our friendly neighborhood data scientist. He is based in Earth Lab’s Analytics Hub where he helps members and affiliates of the lab process, analyze, and publish their hard-won data. He completed his graduate work in CU’s department of Ecology and Evolutionary biology and then left Boulder for a few years to manage a series of large research projects for the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History and for the McGill Sustainable Systems Initiative. Ty specializes in modeling movement and demographic data in human and biological systems but also loves creating extravagant data visualizations and shouting at A.I. systems that don’t behave the way he thinks they should. If you need help turning your data into treasure, then stop by the Analytics Hub and write on the wall with Ty.
