SUMMARY OF EXPERTISE

I hold a PhD in anthropology and more than two decades of experience in research and development projects in natural resource management across the Asia-Pacific region and in particular in Indonesia. For the last 12 years I have worked in the Research Institute for the Environment and Livelihoods at Charles Darwin University (CDU).

 In my role as Associate Professor at the Research Institute for the Environment an Livelihoods, I lead a multidisciplinary group of scientists and postgraduate scholars working on natural resource management, conservation, and livelihood and food security projects in northern Australia and Southeast and mainland Asia. Current and recent research projects and consultancies have included: Small-scale fisheries in Indonesia: benefits to households, the roles of women, and opportunities for improving livelihoods’ (ACIAR); evaluating Indigenous capacity for aquaculture enterprise development in NT (NAMRA); improving coastal and marine livelihoods, and fisheries management in the cross -border regions of the Arafura-Timor Seas region (CDU);  knowledge exchange as a tool for transboundary and coastal management of the Arafura and Timor Seas (GEF/UNDP) ; social impacts of artisanal mining in eastern Indonesia (DFAT GPFD); rehabilitating blue carbon mangrove habitats in Indonesia (NTG); and  Indigenous perceptions of climate change and aquaculture enterprise development (NCCARF).

I also teach a Masters of Environment unit on “Natural Resources and Indigenous Livelihoods’ focused on practical skills for enabling livelihood diversification in different Indigenous and developing country contexts.

I have supervised more than 20 postgraduate students and have 40 peer reviewed publications with a new co-authored book (2018) on Social Wellbeing and the Values of of Small-scale Fisheries and a special journal issue on Understanding Coastal Livelihoods in the Arafura and Timor Seas: Impacts and Opportunities of Contemporary Approaches to Development, Conservation and Resource Governance published in Marine Policy.
