Interdisciplinary research

Through targeted cross-discipline research, we continue to build capacity to deliver social impact through engagement with local and international partners.

This includes projects building on completed research such as our ongoing work on aircraft noise. Also, projects with the local and national government, such as our work on nudge interventions.
