Women in science setting sail for Antarctica

Three University of Queensland researchers are among a group of 100 female scientists from around the world taking part in a year-long leadership scheme culminating in an Antarctic voyage.

They are part of the fourth group selected for the prestigious Homeward Bound program, which aims to create a global network of women in science who can influence policy and decision making.

The Institute for Molecular Bioscience’s Dr Anna Vinkhuyzen and Hana Starobova and Dr Emma Kennedy from the Global Change Institute have teamed up with fellow Queenslanders, Bianca Das and Karen Aitken from CSIRO, to raise funds for the trip.

Kerrie Wilson takes smart decisions to ANU

Twice a year the Fenner School of Environment and Society (FSES) invites outstanding mid-career scholars working in the environment space to deliver a guest lecture and participate in a panel discussion.

In August, that invited scholar was CEED’s Director, Professor Kerrie Wilson, who used the occasion to discuss her lab’s work on structured decision making and how to develop smart decisions for the environment.

In her talk, Kerrie described examples of best practice restoration planning and prioritization approaches involving formal processes of objective setting involving stakeholder groups with varying values and priorities.

Following the presentation, Kerrie fielded questions from an expert panel consisting of Dr Rosie Cooney (IUCN, specialises in illegal trade of wildlife), Associate Professor Phil Gibbons (FSES, working on native vegetation laws and biodiversity offsets policy), and Dr Virginia Marshall (FSES, Inaugural Indigenous Postdoctoral Fellow working on cultural river flows and Indigenous law).

The panel answered a broad range of questions from the audience about how policy, management and research can move closer to incorporating structured decision making into standard practice.
