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. She is currently working with the Tipperary Group of Stations to develop and trial data-driven weed and feral animal management plans.

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

Indicative Funding
$592,300 over 5 years (administered by Charles Darwin University)
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.
