Welcome to the CoHESys-lab web pages

We are a research group based in the School of Geography and the EnvironmentUniversity of Oxford, studying the dynamics of coupled human-environmental systems, using analytical and computational methods. We do both theoretical and more application-driven work in ocean and terrestrial systems, focusing largely on sustainability and resilience.

Understanding, predicting and controlling large-scale human interactions with natural systems is one of the great challenges of our time – in essence, how we continue to use natural services without damaging the underlying infrastructure. Understanding the dynamics of coupled human-environmental systems, and their response to given interventions, is a hard problem and the outcomes are often counter-intuitive. Our aim is to improve this situation through the creation, provision and use of novel analytical and computational tools.
