Richard Taylor

Senior Research Fellow

I am a researcher working in adaptation decision-making and social simulation modelling. I implemented the Adaptation Options Explorer (ADX) prototype in which users can compare multiple decision-making methods. I also program in NetLogo - for multi-agent simulation - applied to the study of complex systems. Research domain areas include: decision-making methods, decision networks, sustainability of ecosystems and related livelihoods, environmentally-induced (human) migration, societal resilience and tipping points.
