Dr. Eve McDonald-Madden
Eve is an ARC Research Fellow at University of Queensland and visiting scientist with the Decisions Lab at CSIRO Sustainable Ecosystems.
Her research focuses on conservation management in the face of uncertainty and approaches to improve conservation decisions by analysing the trade-offs between available dollars, our need for information, and the urgency of the conservation issue.
In particular she is interested in decisions about when to invest in monitoring and adaptive management and how such processes can aid decision-making in the face of uncertainty about climate change.
To facilitate her work Eve uses approaches from applied mathematics, manufacturing sciences, artificial intelligence research and economics. Her work spans all forms of conservation decision-making including population management, meta-population management, the management multiple interacting species and conservation planning.
