Resolving uncertainty in decisions to improve agri-food system outcomes for people and nature

Despite efforts to monitor and manage declining species and ecosystems around the world, biodiversity is still not routinely included in mainstream decision-making and continues to decline at the highest rate in human history. Added to this is the problem that both natural and agri-food systems are complex networks that are continually changing due to human and natural disturbances, with climate change likely to increase the impacts of extreme events like drought, fire and economic shocks on these networks.Because of large …

Investigate, design and develop a trusted data sharing and decision making platform for enterprise applications

Blockchain technology relies on a consensus protocol to agree on the state of the system through data. Existing consensus algorithms rely on pre-defined rules, which are used to verify whether the data is obeying all the rules. This model of consensus may be suitable for broad classes of distributed and multi-stakeholder applications. Still, it does not cover applications that require consensus among human operators in the enterprise setting. This project investigates the possibility of achieving consensus through lightweight mechanisms.

Mapping microbial markets and supply chains

Although biotechnology microbial products may embody specialised technology, the use of these products are common not only in research and industry but also in household uses. Processes such as baking, brewing and pickling use microbial products to produce food and beverage. This project will look at how these products are supplied and sold to customers without specialised biotechnology knowledge.
