Research interests

Steven is a climate applications scientist with the Climate Change Institute at the Australian National University. His role in CCI is to examine opportunities for improved climate risk management, within primary industries, both in Australia and internationally.  He will also be looking at opportunities to activities to include multi-national and global food producers, telecommunications and other industries.

Before joining ANU, Steve worked for the Agriculture and Food Business Unit of CSIRO, contributing to the Global Food Security in a Changing world research program. 



Steve's research capabilities include:

  • the translation of climate change impact scenarios from rainfall and temperature into forms useful for decision makers, such as crop and pasture production, biodiversity, farm incomes and broader socio-economic impacts;
  • participatory engagement with decision makers to improve the value derived from climate risk management in decision making;
  • the development of quantitative models and methods to derive value from seasonal climate forecasts and climate change projection information in agricultural, natural resource and biodiversity management, including the economic valuation of climate forecasts; and
  • developing and implementing practical concepts of vulnerability, resilience and adaptive capacity across scales, including the design of nested institutional arrangements and ways of increasing the societal value of climate impacts science, and re-defining biodiversity conservation objectives.
