Dynamic System Modelling of Relationships between Environmental Sustainability, Food and Health Issues
(Please note: Dr Halog is unable to accept applications from new Master of Philosophy and PhD students until late 2017)
This projects aims to develop a prototype computational-based system model for understanding the interrelationship between sustainability, particularly climate change, food systems, dietary choices and human health. Preferably, the applicant has previous training or background in system dynamics and/ or agent based modelling (ABM) including their software packages (e.g. STELLA, Powersim, AnyLogic, Open ABM, REPAST, NetLogo, StarLogo) or has high drive and initiative to learn these computational and quantitative methods for dynamic system modelling and analysis. Applicants will develop skills in modelling, analysis, data management, scenario and policy formulation and the development of sustainable solutions.
