Doug contributes to improving the resilience of social, infrastructure and environmental systems against the complex risks associated with natural hazards and climate variability. Doug's post-graduate research applies robust environmental modelling approaches to quantify these risks, with an interest in optimising risk management activities in order to protect social, economic and environmental values.
With formal education across engineering and finance and a passion for solving social and environmental challenges, Doug brings a holistic, systems-orientated mindset to his research.
Open to collaborating with stakeholders, researchers and communities from diverse backgrounds on interdisciplinary topics, Doug invites those interested to get in touch.
