Dr Tim Capon

Agricultural and Environmental Economist

Contact details:


Tim's research draws on economic theories of decision-making under risk and uncertainty to understand the factors that shape decisions and market outcomes. Applications include work on economic resilience, disaster mitigation, climate change adaptation decision-making, the design of market-based instruments for natural resource management, and the economics of plant and animal biosecurity. A particular research interest is the use of real options analysis to investigate economic resilience. Tim currently leads a sub-project of the FMD Ready project that links disease spread modelling and economic analysis to provide strategic decision support for emergency animal disease outbreaks.
