Adam Charette-Castonguay: Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Adam is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Queensland and CSIRO Agriculture and Food, based in Brisbane. His research consists of using spatial models to explore human-environmental systems and inform environmental policies, particularly in water and food systems.

In his PhD, Adam developed an agent-based model to simulate the behaviour of stakeholders and policies in urban stormwater management leading to the adoption of decentralised stormwater treatment and harvesting technologies in Melbourne. He then joined the University of Queensland McDonald-Madden lab in 2018 to work on developing a spatial optimisation model of beef production to meet global demand whilst minimising multiple local environmental impacts, such as carbon emissions, biodiversity loss and water pollution.

Adam enjoys gardening, cooking and playing ice hockey.
