Title: A Dynamic General Equilibrium Model to Mitigate Greenhouse Gas Emissions: The Malaysian Agriculture Sector

Summary:
Using fossil fuels such as diesel, petrol, coal, and methane create greenhouse gases that trap more of the sun’s energy in the atmosphere and gradually warm the planet. A research team at Curtin University received a grant to study how much greenhouse gases the Malaysian agriculture and plantation sectors can re-cycle by using biodiesel, ethanol, bio-electricity, and bio-methane. The team will build a mathematical model of the Malaysian agriculture and plantation sectors and study the impact of government policies on greenhouse gas mitigation.
Eligibility:
Malaysia citizen with a relevant degree with CGPA 3.0 and above.
Can work independently and possesses an excellent command of English.
Good knowledge of mathematics and the ability to learn GAMS programming.
