Travis Flohr is a faculty associate in the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. As a landscape architect and planner, his research focuses on spatially evaluating the performance of landscape architectural designs and urban and regional planning policy related to: ecosystem services, green infrastructure, and natural hazards. His focus right now is natural hazards, particularly wildfires. To understand and design within complex social and natural systems, Travis uses traditional mixed-methods research methodologies, geospatial analyses and modeling, and spatial statistics. Geodesign provides a framework for his research application toward projects that foster healthy balanced development and social justice across the urban to rural transect.
