Dr Ehsan originally trained as a Civil Engineer with the majority of my training, research, and work experience on using System Thinking to build complex decision support systems, particularly for environmental issues. He did my PhD in sociology at ANU, looking at the role of technology and scientific modelling in shaping transboundary water conflicts.
He have worked as a Research Fellow at the 3Ai Institute at ANU (2018-20), and STS group at Harvard Kennedy School (2016-17).
Since 2013 Ehsan has also worked closely with colleagues at the Fenner School at the ANU on research and teaching for different courses on sustainability and environmental policy. He is also leading an EU-funded project on ‘water policy innovation’.
He has been privileged to take visiting positions at a number of world-leading schools and institutions including the School of African and Oriental Studies (SOAS) at The University of London and Center for Development Research (ZEF) at University of Bonn.
