Murray Scown is a geographer with a passion for spatial analyses of complex social-ecological systems. His research utilises big data and GIS to map, measure, and model land use and river systems across a range of scales from local to continental. His research currently focuses on the role that agriculture will play in achieving the SDGs and, in particular, how to quantify trade-offs among potentially competing environmental, social, and economic goals in agriculture. He is also involved in ongoing research with collaborators in the US and Australia exploring social-ecological resilience in rivers and other geomorphic systems that are potentially threatened by climate change.
