Academic interests

My research focus is based on trying to understand the complex interplay between social and natural systems. To disentangle the drivers in the system I use techniques such as emergent properties in networks and conditional probabilities in Bayesian networks. My PhD was completed in 2011 at the University of Queensland on coral reef ecology and I subsequently spent 3 years at the Stockholm Resilience Centre with Örjan Bodin and Thorsten Blenckner modeling Baltic Sea fisheries and governance drivers in natural resource systems. For this time at CEES I am working with Florian Diekert on the NATCOOP project hoping to increase our understanding of how nature shapes preferences and incentives of economic agents and how this in turn affects common-pool resource management.
