Angus Webb is a Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Resource Management and Geography. Angus originally trained in marine ecology, with his PhD research examining the effects of heavy metal pollution on marine sessile assemblages. Post-PhD, he moved into the study of landscape-scale impacts of human-induced distrubances on freshwater systems, largely through projects undertaken with the Cooperative Research Centre for Freshwater Ecology and the eWater Cooperative Research Centre.
Current research includes:
- Ecological responses to changes in river flow regimes, focusing on data collected under the Victorian Environmental Flows Monitoring and Assessment Program
- Bayesian analysis of large-scale environmental data sets
- Modelling effects of habitat network topography on populations and communities
- Causal Criteria Analysis as a means of systematically analyzing the knowledge in existing literature
