profile picture of mcallister


Ryan is a behavioural economist with CSIRO's Ecosystem Sciences, Australia. He studies social behaviours that are shaped by key environmental processes, with a particular interest in institutions for managing variability and uncertainty. He spent many years exploring the mechanisms for coping with variability in arid and semi-arid Australia. More recently he has examined the distribution of the economic winners and losers from climate adaptations, how this impedes action, and the institutions that help overcome inaction. Ryan's main approaches include game and network theory. For publications see www.researcherid.com/rid/A-4866-2008
