    The Urban Systems Lab (USL) is an interdisciplinary research, design, and practice space at The New School that provides information and analysis for developing more equitable, resilient, and sustainable cities. The USL's work advances cutting-edge science, data visualization, and computation to develop systemic solutions to social and environmental challenges driving inequity and injustice in urban areas. We bring together designers, urban ecologists, scientists, researchers, and policymakers with the goal of improving the lives of the most vulnerable people and improving decision making and science communication at scales ranging from the local to the global. Our research is designed to reveal how social, ecological, and technological systems (SETS) processes drive everyday experiences in urban areas, leveraging empirical and theoretical approaches and data visualization to advance urban systems research and practice. We address a variety of research areas, including urban resilience, climate change adaptation and nature-based solutions, SETS analysis and modeling, urban land use planning, social equity and environmental justice, scenarios for sustainable urban futures, urban biodiversity and ecosystem services, and data visualization and urban data science.
