University of Leeds

Institute acronym:

Leeds

Institute profile:

The University of Leeds has expertise in integrated modeling, coupling agent-based, regional economic, hydrological, nutrient flow, erosion and biodiversity models at a landscape scale. Environmental Science in Leeds is a recognised centre of research excellence, as the second largest recipient of the Government’s Natural Environment Research Council blue skies funding. The University’s Sustainability Research Institute is a centre of excellence for participatory research, conducting interdisciplinary environmental analysis for sustainable land management, and the River Basin Processes and Management research group in the School of GeographyLeedsEurope and Africa through a series of EU-funded projects (e.g. MEDALUS, DESERTLINKS, PESERA) and other bodies (e.g. UNDP/GEF, Royal Society, UK Government Research Councils). The team conducts strategic and applied research that connects environmental knowledge to public and private sector decision making at local, regional, national and international levels. regularly publishes in top journals including Nature and Science.

Doan has a background in natural resource management and ecological economics. His research interest revolves around developing quantitative modelling approaches to integrate human (socio-economic) processes and data and biophysical spatial processes and data which can be used to better understand trajectories or pathways of socio-environmental (or socio-ecological) changes under different plausible future scenarios.
