Prof John Boland
Boland's research focus lies in combining mathematical, statistical and time
series techniques, particularly in the area of environmental modelling and
assessment. The result of this is that he has wide ranging applications of his
approach to applying rigorous mathematical techniques to real world
A short summary of the
scope of his work and professional achievements includes:
nationally competitive grants, including eight ARC Discovery and Linkage,
since 2000 (having received his PhD in 1996). It is important to note that there
is a diversity of fields in these grants from water resource management,
renewable energy and its integration into the electricity grid, food waste
reduction, permeable pavers, solar energy forecasting, climate change
adaptation to ecosystem regeneration, and water management and wildfire
