Bio: I am a coastal scientist and modeller specialising in the interactions between natural and engineered systems. I develop models and tools to improve decision-making in complex coastal human-environment systems in response to sea level rise, climate change and land use change. I am experienced in agent-based and system dynamics modelling, having developed ecological, economic, geomorphic, infrastructural, multi-hazard interaction, social and political models, as well as whole-system models simulating the interactions between these systems. I completed a PhD in Geography in 2020, during which I developed and implemented a new methodology for transdisciplinary complex systems modelling to investigate publicly identified concerns about New Zealand’s estuarine systems.
