Angus joined the Economic Futures Team as an honours student in 2013. The team is developing a conceptual landscape bio-economic model and associated experimental economics platform to evaluate policy options. In 2012, Angus ran the experimental economics laboratory for the team's research.
Angus is developing a model of wildlife corridor formation. Under laboratory conditions using experimental economics, he will use the model to explore how landholders could coordinate their actions to maximise wildlife corridor formation at least cost. This research will provide insight into methods used to combat the negative impact of landscape fragmentation in Tasmania.
Angus was awarded the Tasmanian Governor’s Environment Scholarship 2013.
