Frankie is working on a PhD jointly at the University of Exeter (UK) and the University of Queensland. His PhD project, supported by the QUEX Institute, investigates how to best make natural capital decisions under uncertainty, with empirical applications in the UK and Australia. Supervised by Professor Brett Day (Exeter) and Professor Jonathan Rhodes (UQ), his work draws upon the fields of environmental economics and ecology. This project applies state-of-the-art computational methods to (1) characterise the uncertainties arising from coupled ecological and economic models and (2) identify efficient and robust spatial landscape configurations. These research findings will inform public policy that support sustainable natural capital management in the face of climate change.
