I have completed a PhD that focused on climate change impact assessments, as applied to water resource systems. As part of my research I have developed techniques to improve these assessments including:

  • Creating climate scenarios to investigate potential threats to water resource systems (foreSIGHT software)
  • 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. Since completing my PhD I have had the opportunity to apply these climate change impact assessment tools to agricultural, water and energy systems.

For the past few years I have held a post-doctoral research position funded by the Future Fuels CRC. This research has focused on identifying the opportunities and barriers to the uptake of bioenergy projects in Australia. A webinar presenting an overview of this research is available here.
