The Housing Energy Efficiency Transitions project brings together understanding of people's experiences of their homes, the practices of the energy efficiency industry, and governance, to advance energy efficiency retrofits for sustainability, equity and housing quality. I have been employed as a Research Fellow on the project.
The two-day online course covers key considerations in advancing ethical cities, including taking a principled and inclusive approach to city governance that addresses structural inequalities. As co-educator, my role was to develop the structure and content of the course in collaboration with academics, administrators and funders.
The five-day online course takes participants through an active process of learning about mobility interventions and how they can support liveability in the city, including providing a range of benefits for safety, cultural expression, belonging and sustainability. I supported the lead academics by writing content.
2019 to 2021
The Flood Management Strategy Port Phillip and Westernport sets the direction for flood management by multiple agencies in the region. Working closely with the team, my role was to help plan stakeholder consultation, analyse data, write reports, and write the foundation of the strategy.
Agencies that manage flooding have clear responsibilities and need to work together under their common goal of protecting communities, social functioning, and the environment. Working with Jamie Comley, our role was to develop a process to support partners in working together with consistency, flexibility and accountability.
2020 to 2021
Working with Brian Coffey and Judy Bush, we are considering urban greening in relation to the ways that the environment is represented, good governance of urban greening, and reflective research practices so that approaches to urban greening are inclusive, democratic and centre the environment.
Water quality monitoring has been undertaken for many decades by a range of organisations. This project revisited the objectives of a waterway water quality monitoring network and its use. Working with Jamie Comley, we undertook interviews and categorised current uses and indicated potential future uses of the network.
