Morgan R Grant is a PhD student in the School of Mathematics and Physics at The University of Queensland, where he obtained his honours degree in mathematics. His research interests include random graph models, rare event simulation techniques and applications of Monte Carlo simulation to solve real world problems.
Rare events such as the state-wide power blackout in South Australia in September 2016, natural disasters such as floods and bushfires, or the ensuing chaos when parts of a complex interconnected systems such as the internet fail, are difficult for researchers to simulate or model. They're the primary interest of ACEMS Chief Investigator Dirk Kroese.
