My current research is with the Integrated Forest Ecosystem Research Program (IFER) project: “Assessing and incorporating social, economic, ecological and community safety values of forests in bushfire risk decision-making” with Associate Professor Kathryn Williams and Dr. Rebecca Ford. We are identifying a range of values at risk of bushfire and planned burning, studying public perceptions and acceptability of bushfire risk management strategies, and analysing of bushfire risk planning.

In my PhD research, I examined rural landscape transition in the Ovens catchment in northeast Victoria (Southeastern Australia). In particular, I studied: the application of a Bricolage research approach to landscape change; the adaptation of a heuristic called the Adaptive Cycle as a tool for comparing different stakeholder perceptions of a social-ecological system; and discourse and social memory as vehicles for expressing relationships of power over the trajectory of a region in the process of transition. My background is in environmental sociology and social research in natural resource management. In particular, I have expertise in rural transition research in academic and private sectors. Over the past decade, I have been researching with and studying: stakeholder engagement; social theory and policy; environmental management; participatory decision making processes; community resilience.
