Dr Matthew Holden
The University of Queensland
Matthew is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions at the University of Queensland. He earned his PhD in Applied Mathematics at Cornell University, using math to improve invasive species and agricultural pest control. His current research fits within two themes (1) evaluating the efficacy of quantitative approaches to natural resource management and (2) understanding the dynamics of social-ecological systems, where policy affects human behaviour. Mathematical tools unify his research across several diverse topics, including illegal wildlife trade and fisheries stock assessment.
