Dr David McInerney

ARC Grant-Funded Researcher (B)

School of Architecture and Civil Engineering

Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology

My research interests involve the use of mathematical and statistical models to improve the understanding and management of physical systems. Areas which my research has focussed on include   

  • Quantifying uncertainty in hydrological predictions
  • Developing statistical models for emulating complex climate models
  • Robust decision making with respect to uncertain future climate change
  • Hydrodynamic modelling of lakes and flood plains
  • Numerical and statistical modelling of geological processes
