I am a PhD candidate in the School of Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering. I am researching climate change impact assessments, with a focus on those applied to water resource systems. I am developing techniques to improve these methods including:
- Creating climate scenarios to investigate potential threats to water resource systems
- Identifying the critical changes in climate that will degrade systems
- Identifying operational changes to systems in response to changes in climate
This research has included the use of formal optimisation techniques, the specification of process driven and data driven models, and methods for decision making under deep uncertainty.
