Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Environmental Policy, The University of Queensland

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and a Research Associate at the Centre for Policy Futures at the University of Queensland.

My research falls broadly within environmental policy, governance and economics, with a particular focus on how complex policy processes translate into environmental outcomes. I have worked and published on topics ranging from biodiversity offsetting, native vegetation policy, carbon markets and conservation planning, and I am passionate about conducting interdisciplinary, impactful research in close consultation with colleagues working in government, non-government organisations and industry.
