Research Fellow, University of Tasmania
Karen is a research fellow in ecosystem-based management at the University of Tasmania. Her research focusses on ‘blue growth’ and she is particularly interested in understanding why conflict occurs around coastal and marine natural resource use. Originally from Scotland, Karen did her PhD at the Scottish Association for Marine Science. Karen feels quite at home in Tasmania – she loves the mountains and the sea. Outside of work she enjoys mediation, bushwalking, kayaking, general adventure and is currently learning to help crew a 40-foot Dubois racing yacht called ‘Ultimate Challenge’.
