Biao’s research spans issues in marine resource policy, uncertainty in resource management and permit trading systems. In 2016 Biao spent one year in Germany as a postdoctoral fellow investigating the risk and uncertainty in the provision of ecosystem services in support of sustainable land management options. Biao is particularly interested in understanding feedbacks among complex ecological systems, human decisions and the management of coupled ecological-economic processes. He works in several applied areas including marine resource economics and policy, climate change and land use. Biao’s research methods include bioeconomic modelling, econometrics, and Bayesian Simulation.
