Josie’s research focuses on collecting and analysing biological and socio-economic information for determining where and how to conserve biodiversity and achieve other benefits such as carbon sequestration. She has a PhD in conservation planning from the University of Queensland in 2009. Her work includes the development of methods for achieving biodiversity conservation in a carbon market, developing and applying systematic and economically-grounded methods for cost-effective decision-making for species conservation, identifying spatial priorities for new protected areas and off-reserve conservation actions, and using expert knowledge to make good and adaptive conservation planning decisions in data poor regions. Josie is associated with Prof Possingham's lab.
