I'm a lecturer in environmental management at Charles Sturt University. My key areas of teaching focus on preparing reflective and ethical professionals to work in the complex and changing field of the environmental sciences.
I've been teaching for 10 years, but before this I explored many different working environments eventually finding my passion for research, teaching and learning. I began my research journey focusing on the protection of cultural heritage places from bushfire events. For my PhD I changed tack, exploring the role of mobility as a critical agent in the development of rural Australia, while also recognising the role of 'invisible' people and cultures in the early 19th and 20th centuries: rabbiters, camel drivers, swaggies, land clearing gangs, and even traveling dentists and lecturers.
My current teaching and research interests include the disciplinary nature of teaching and learning in environmental sciences, and the critical role of student transition into, through, and from tertiary education.
