I have been trained as a social geographer, an educator and an agricultural scientist, and my research represents that cross-disciplinary interest.  Over the last 18 years, my work has focused on environmental and agro-ecological risk management, and especially  climate change adaptation; links between conservation and development; and education, for sustainable development.  My research has been undertaken while working for the South Australian Government and while based in universities and research institutes in Australia, Switzerland and the UK, and has involved socio-ecological studies in Australia, Thailand, Turkey, Switzerland, Nepal and the European Union.  Over the last few years I have been researching climate change adaptation in the Adelaide-Mt Lofty Ranges and Alinytjara Wilurara regions of South Australia, and planning for bushfire risk mitigation within the Mediterranean biome.
