Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Environmental Policy, The University of Queensland

My research falls broadly within environmental policy, governance and economics, with a particular focus on biodiversity conservation and natural resource management. I am an interdisciplinary researcher, and draw on both quantitative and qualitative methods used in the natural and social sciences. The overarching goal of my research is to achieve better outcomes for the environment and society through an understanding of the policy process: design, implementation and evaluation.

I’m currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Queensland. I am completing my PhD at the Fenner School of Environment and Society, Australian National University.
