My work and life is grounded in nature. Protecting our precious environment is as important to me as experiencing it.

I am passionate about building ecologically sound and just futures, but I am deeply concerned with the ecological, biodiversity, climate and socio-economic crises that are happening in front of us. I believe that we can’t make change on our own and grassroots action is as important as legislative change. This realisation has led me to focus my research on sustainability matters for rural communities (at the meso-level).

Systems thinking requires us to consider the whole of society and our environment. Tackling our societal problems from one point of view is not going to make the transformational solutions we need. I approach the challenges of our time with holistic perspectives, reflective learning and co-creational practice.
