About Dr. Peter Hayes

Peter’s earlier working life in forestry led him to become increasingly involved in bushfire and fostered a growing interest in teamwork and decision making. With support from the Bushfire CRC, he used simulation to complete doctoral research at La Trobe University focused on incident management teamwork and decision making. Peter has continued to undertake research and author work in decision making, the use of simulation for developing personnel, coaching and mentoring, and incident management capabilities. Currently Peter works on two emergency sector research projects. The first is part of a BNHCRC research stream led by CQU colleague Dr Chris Bearman on improving decision making in complex multi-team environments. In the second project, funded by Emergency Management Victoria, he is part of an RMIT University research team investigating social media use by the community during emergencies.
