About

Erin Graham combines biology with big data analytics to quantify the effects of climate change on biodiversity.  With an undergraduate in Information Technology, a Marine Biology PhD, and postdoctoral experience modelling terrestrial species distributions, Erin has a wide range of cross-disciplinary skills including statistical modelling and GIS.  More recently, Erin’s work involves assessing current and future rates of change in climate extremes, likely thresholds and tipping points, and the adaptive capacity of species, communities and ecosystems to respond.

Multi-objective planning in Northern Australia: co-benefits and trade-offs between environmental, economic, and cultural outcomes

Indicative Funding
$557,300 over 3 years (administered by Charles Darwin University)
Summary
This research will create a toolkit to guide planning and management that supports multiple uses of land and water, while maintaining environmental and cultural values. The toolkit will provide a roadmap to assess the potential impacts of current and future development on biodiversity and ecosystems and the influence of different approaches to management. Specifically, the project will examine the links between terrestrial, freshwater, and coastal marine species and communities. In addition, the toolkit will facilitate assessment of the benefits and costs of implementing different management interventions to mitigate threats to biodiversity associated with different land and water uses.

Regionalisation of the late dry season across northern Australia

Indicative Funding
$13,636
Summary
This project will develop a spatio-temporal model combining rainfall and temperature data to estimate a regionalised late dry season date for broad geographic regions across northern Australia. The mode will inform relevant savanna fire management for National Greenhouse Gas Inventory and Emissions Reduction Fund determinations.
Investigators
Jeremy VanDerWal, Erin Graham and Anna Pintor in collaboration with Justin Perry and Helen Murphy (Research Infrastructure, College of Science & Engineering and Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organisation)
