Research officer, Environmental Policy, James Cook University

I have a PhD in Environmental Policy warded by James Cook University. The aims of my doctoral research were (i) to understand social and political aspects that can affect the uptake and implementation of biodiversity conservation actions, and (ii) to incorporate those in conservation planning and evaluation in order to design more robust approaches.

My research currently focuses on the management of natural resources by traditional and Indigenous populations. I have lived and worked in Brazil, Spain, England, Australia and Fiji.
