I am a human geographer and environmental social scientist. I did my PhD on cattle culture, land, and resource management in Central Australia. Since then I have conducted research on household sustainabilty and natural resource management in high amenity rural and per-urban areas. My current research focuses on resident perceptions of bushfire risk and amenity in peri-urban areas and invasive plant management by lifestyle rural landholders. I am with the Australian Centre for Culture, Environment, Society and Space (ACCESS) at the University of Wollongong.
