I have a PhD, which investigated household response to water demand policy; a Masters in Environmental Management and BA (Hons) in Environmental Science. I am also a JP (Qual) and a member of the Planning Institute of Australia. I am currently researching various aspects of urban sustainability, including housing affordability, water and energy use, environmental behaviour and attitudes to climate change.
I have worked for State Government (Queensland and NSW) in Planning, Spatial Information, Community Engagement (wetlands and acid sulfate soils) and Water Policy (communication). I have also worked for NGOs, including Wetland Care Australia and the Wildlife and Environment Society (Cape Town).
