Researcher biography

My studies in the Bachelor of Environmental Science have given me an appreciation for the interconnectedness of the natural world. Numerous soil science subjects have instilled in me an understanding of how fundamental soil is. Yet my passion lies with plants, people’s connection with nature, and the bigger picture. I found myself very interested in elective courses about sustainable development and holistic management of this ecosystem (Earth). So these different interests are culminating in my Honours thesis about the equity of the greenery in Brisbane. I’m discovering how some people have more greenery around them, whether this is changing over time, and the implications for people’s wellbeing and sustainable development. Moving forward, I will continue to explore environmental psychology, conservation, and become a certified practitioner of Forest Therapy (Shinrin-yoku).
