Senior Research Scientist - Socio-economic Systems and Natural Resource Management
Amy is a lecturer in the College of Marine and Environmental Sciences at James Cook University. Her research interests relate broadly to the social-ecological dimensions of conservation and natural resource management, with an emphasis on coastal and marine environments. Specifically, they include exploring how rural, resource dependent communities respond to social and environmental change, and how this affects their ability to maintain sustainable use of natural resources. She emphasises applied, interdisciplinary approaches to research, and specialises in quantitative and qualitative ethnographic methods.
