Senior Research Fellow in Resources Policy, The University of Queensland

I am a Senior Research Fellow within the Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining at the Sustainable Minerals Institute. I undertake applied research and consulting with government, industry and civil society on the socio-environmental change that accompanies the extraction of natural resources. I am currently the co-Chair for Social Impact Assessment at the International Association for Impact Assessment. Prior to joining the University of Queensland I led a Social and Economic Unit within the then Queensland Department of Natural Resources and Water and I have also worked as an environmental geoscientist.
