Personal profile

Research interests

Jocelyn, a geographer, has broad research interests and engagements.  She lives and works in Alice Springs and has specialised in arid rangeland environments.  She is predominantly a qualitative researcher and is skilled in participatory action research methods.  She has contributed strongly as a leader of research that has helped to grow and support the vibrant Aboriginal land management movement nationally and in South Australia and central Australia.  Internationally she has coordinated and worked in specialist roles to address agricultural research and development issues in sub-Saharan Africa; supported emerging community based wildlife conservation initiatives in Vietnam; and collaborated with Chinese colleagues to support their publishing program for rangeland research from Inner Mongolia.  As a principal research scientist with CSIRO 2005-2015 and as part of the Desert Knowledge Cooperative Research Centre (2002-2009), Jocelyn led social science research teams and groups engaged in research on sustainable livelihoods, indigenous natural and cultural resource management and climate change adaptation.   Her PhD research in community-based planning for Aboriginal land management and her earlier career as a ranger and protected area planner laid a strong foundation for her teaching, research and consultancy work at University of Adelaide (1996-2005) on Indigenous environmental management, co-management of protected areas, and native title claim resolution.  Currently is leading a participatory project for the Central Australian Aboriginal Congress, a leading primary health care service, which aims to make its 50 year history accessible to the Congress community.
