Philippa Chandler

Research Fellow, The University of Melbourne

Philippa Chandler is Research Fellow at the Melbourne School of Design.

Philippa is interested in the relationships between people and places, and how communities create a sense of identity in relation to their surroundings. Philippa's PhD explored place-attachment, community and environmental conflict among return visitors to the Ningaloo Reef region of Western Australia.

She is currently investigating how schools can double-up as community hubs, as part of the ARC Linkage Building Connections: Schools as Community Hubs.
