Researcher biography

Jonathan is interested in the application of mathematical models and decision analysis to inform environmental decision-making and policy setting, particularly for conserving biodiversity and the sustainable use of ecosystem services. His work has revealed new insights into how dynamic landscape change and climate change drive biodiversity and ecosystem services and what the implications are for environmental decision-making under uncertainty. He has also worked on optimal monitoring problems to quantify the benefits of investment in new information and research for environmental decisions. Jonathan's work is multidisciplinary and has application across a wide range of scales from local to global. His current work focusses on linking processes across global and local scales to inform environmental policy setting at multiple scales and decision-making in complex social-ecological landscapes. Jonathan is based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and the Centre for Biodiversity and Conservation Science at The University of Queensland (UQ).
