The social, economic and ecological interactions and trade-offs within land use systems.   Approaches typically use high-performance computing to apply data and computationally intensive techniques, such as agent-based modelling, to improve understanding of these complex systems.  For example, the role of bioenergy in decarbonising energy production and delivering other societal benefits.  Other current work includes developing a new global agricultural land use model and analysis of the drivers for agricultural land use change.
