Senior Lecturer in Design

PhD (Queensland University of Technology), Master of Creative Arts (University of Wollongong), Master of Landscape Architecture (Queensland University of Technology)

Since 2003 I have taught across undergraduate and postgraduate design programs at QUT, with a focus on design studios taught with external communities and clients, both in remote communities, and with urban and regional partner organisations. I also teach in theory units, including applied Landscape Ecology. As a Course, Study Area and Unit Coordinator, I have significant experience in the design and delivery of curriculum and syllabus, and in their management and quality assurance.

A visual artist as well as a Registered Landscape Architect, I have been teaching design studios incorporating creative arts methods in partnership with Brisbane Powerhouse since 2014, and with Economic Development Queensland since 2018. My research broadly concerns the conception of landscape - or place - meaning, with a focus on creative arts approaches to design, design in post-industrial landscapes, and the pedagogy of authentic design learning.
