Having always respected the environment, but recognising that there are limited resources available to manage the environment, lead me on a path to study a BSc in Natural Resource Management, followed by a PhD in Environmental Economics at The University of Western Australia. Since completing my PhD in 2011, I have worked in the Agricultural and Resource Economics discipline and the Centre for Environmental Economics and Policy at UWA, currently as a Research Fellow. My primary research interests are in the application of non-market valuation to estimate community values and preferences for environmental conservation and management. This includes applications in the context of marine, terrestrial and aquatic environments. Ultimately, I am interested in improving the application, understanding and accessibility of non-market valuation techniques such that they can be used to improve environmental decision making.
