Dr Katrina Davis commenced at the University of Queensland (UQ) as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in July 2015.
Her research investigates optimal use of natural resources to maximise the productivity of human and ecological systems. Her current research examines how to integrate expert and stakeholder preferences for marine ecological features by incorporating non-market valuation into marine spatial optimisation.
Dr Davis completed her PhD, ‘Economic benefits and costs of spatial marine management,’ in 2016 through the University of Western Australia under the supervision of Professor David Pannell, Dr Marit Kragt and Dr Steven Schilizzi.
