Josie is a joint post-doctoral fellow with the Conservation Decisions Lab at CSIRO Ecosystem Sciences and the NERP Environmental Decisions Hub at the University of Queensland Node. Her research focuses on conservation planning and decision making for biodiversity conservation under a changing climate and a carbon economy. She endeavours to draw together key ecological and socio-economic information to support better decision outcomes for biodiversity and people.
Josie's current projects include both national and state-wide analyses of priority areas for restoration to achieve carbon and biodiversity benefits, which relates to NERP Project 5.6. Further, she is building upon her pioneering work on prioritising threat management for biodiversity conservation in the Kimberley, to undertake regional scale analyses o ...

Dr Sam Nicol

Sam is broadly interested in how we make decisions to allocate resources to conservation projects. He uses mathematical optimization tools to figure out the best way to manage resources over time to achieve a conservation goal. Sam uses solution techniques drawn from operations research and artificial intelligence to solve these problems. Within the NERP hub, Sam’s postdoc fits into two projects: building lasting biodiversity assets, and monitoring for adaptive management. The postdoc is focussed on the adaptive management of dynamic networks. This means he is developing new methods to apply cutting-edge optimization tools to manage ecological networks that change over time. His current project is to determine how to manage migratory birds using the East Asia-Australasia flyway under uncertainty about the extent of fut ...
