Dr Morenikeji Deborah Akinlotan
Queensland University of Technology
Research Fellow


Morenikeji is an applied mathematician who models complex biological and environmental systems. She is passionate about using mathematics to solve real world problems that directly influence environmental policies. Within SAEF, her work will focus on using mathematical decision science to explore the relationship between the collection of new data (and therefore reducing uncertainties) and the optimal management of Antarctic ecosystems (e.g., protected area planning, invasive species management, land or marine resource use, tourism, or new large terrestrial project evaluation). She aims to develop quantitative methods and tools that will be useful for efficient Antarctic biodiversity conservation planning.
