Research Impacts

Nina has worked on environmental and social sustainability issues in research and non-government organisations and she is motivated by an aim to create and contribute to high-impact research that responds to complex or ‘wicked’ environmental and social challenges in Australia and globally. She conducts research and teaching on responses to complex issues around the sustainable and integrated development, including management and use of water and energy resources with social, environmental and economic considerations. This includes communicating water, renewable energy and health-relevant research findings into policy outcomes with stakeholders, which covers research on community engagement, behaviour change and policy analysis.
