Dr. Camaren Peter is appointed as an Extra-Ordinary Senior Lecturer in the School of Public Leadership. He has a rigorous background in the sciences and studied physics and astrophysics before joining the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research for 8 years, where his core research revolved around modelling complex systems for decision-making. This sparked an interest in systems and complexity theory, and dynamic systems modelling and simulation. This eventually led to a focus on problems concerning the mutual sustainability of social, economic and ecological systems. Camaren's PhD research was concerned with the core issues governing sustainability and how to model sustainable futures using a combination of probability-based models and participatory processes. Camaren has worked closely with decision-makers and sustainability problems at national, provincial and city scales to help determine how strategic transitions to sustainability can be achieved. Camaren has a special interest in climate change and global change effects, and how those influence development and increase the urgency for transitions to sustainability. More recently Camaren has been researching emerging theories governing transitions to sustainability at macro-scales and city scales, with a special emphasis on infrastructure transitions. He is also part of SI Projects, which is the Sustainability Institute's contract research unit.
