My particular expertise is in resource management law and practice. My research has a focus on examining the intersections between natural systems and regulatory frameworks and the implications of this for law and planning. An important theme relates to biodiversity conservation and finding solutions to challenges, particularly those relating to coexistence between humans and wildlife. More broadly my research concerns:
- All areas of Environmental Law, with particular focus on the Resource Management Act 1991 and statutory processes governing resource use, development and protection.
- Spatial planning, regulation and governance
- Local government law and planning
- The common law as it relates to the environment
- Special focus areas - resource management plans, development, conservation, biodiversity, threatened species, planning methods, spatial planning, internalisation of effects, property rights, farming, organic production, professional planning practice, the legal aspects of environmental modelling and other decision support tools.
