What is VICE Lab?Image of the Viers Lab in the field.

VICE Lab is the research lab of Professor Joshua H. Viers at the University of California, Merced. We focus on pressing environmental problems facing California and the planet, with a particular emphasis on coupled human-environment systems, leveraging information systems to turn data into decisions, and novel solutions in decision making.
