Environmental Social Scientist, CSIRO Land & Water
Dr Nadine Marshall manages research projects across a range of communities (particularly coastal communities dependent on coral reefs), and primary industries including cattle, farming, tourism and commercial fishing. She has had significant influence in ensuring that the human dimension is included in environmental decision-making processes. Nadine leads the Social and Economic Long Term Monitoring Program for the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, and has generated data on the social value of the reef system as a national and global iconic ecosystem and asset. She provides leading edge social science expertise around concepts such as sense of place, identity, resource dependency, social resilience, cultural values and wellbeing, particularly within natural resource systems and issues of climate adaptation.
