The focus is on identifying, monitoring, modelling, assessing and mitigating hazards to both life and health of humans, animals and plants.
Partners have strong collaboration with each other and with industry including insurance and petrochemical. PhD research projects in this pathway will benefit from internationally renowned researchers in the following areas of:
(i) Natural Hazards: Volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, meterological (including floods, storms, heat waves and droughts, space weather and submarine and terrestrial landslides and;
(ii) Biological Hazards: wildlife diseases (infectious and non-infectious, plant diseases, parasites and disease vectors, eutrophication, invasive species, medical and industrial waste containing microorganism, virus or biological toxins, and genetic epidemiology.
