Dr Brian Walker
Research Fellow – CSIRO Sustainable Ecosystems
Dr Walker is a Research Fellow with CSIRO Sustainable Ecosystems and is also Program Director and Chair of the Board of the Resilience Alliance, an international research group working on sustainability of social-ecological systems.
A key focus of his work is the significance of resilience (the capacity of a system to absorb disturbance and to undergo change while still retaining essentially the same function, structure, identity, and feedbacks) in the sustainability of ecosystems and social-ecological systems.
Dr Walker co-authored the 2006 book Resilience thinking: Sustaining ecosystems and people in a changing world.
