Service Leader - Coastal, University of Waikato

I have extensive national and international research and consulting experience in coastal climate change impacts and hazards, climate change adaptation, coastal processes, and te ao Māori. My ability to combine these skills is invaluable across various commercial/research projects and advising for a broad variety of clients. I am an experienced and engaging communicator, and have a wealth of wānanga, teaching and media experience. I co-lead Te Komiti Māori in the New Zealand Coastal Society, and continue to engage in research including postgraduate student supervision. I am a Coastal Service Leader at Pattle Delamore Partners (PDP) in Tauranga, New Zealand and honorary lecturer at the University of Waikato.
