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.

Research Interests:
• Geodesign
• Green infrastructure and ecosystem services
• Natural hazards, particularly wildfire and flooding
• Quantitative and qualitative performance-based design and planning
• Mixed-methods research methodology
• Geographic information systems (GIS), geospatial analyses, modeling, and spatial
