Emma.Pharo@utas.edu.au

Dr Emma Pharo is a teaching intensive academic who specialises in the Master of Environmental Management and the Master of Planning. She coordinates KGA512 Statutory Land Use PlanningKGA381 Environmental Impact Assessment and XBR102 Developing Your Creative and Entrepreneurial Potential. She teaches into KGA522 Regional Planning, and first year geography KGA171 Global Geographies of Change

Emma has wide ranging interests in interdisciplinary learning and communication between a range of environmental disciplines. Between 2011 and 2016, she worked as an adviser for a not-for-profit and learned a lot about how government, media, and industry works. She has an ongoing volunteer role in the 'real world', which means Emma is able to give her students authentic learning tasks, and conduct research that is strongly linked to need and end users.

Biography

Emma has been at the University of Tasmania since 1999. She moved to Tasmania from a postdoctoral position at the University of Alberta (Canada), where she worked with a team of foresters, economists and social researchers on resilient forest ecosystems. Prior to the position in Canada, she completed a PhD at Macquarie University in Sydney. Her undergraduate science degree was in geography at the University of Melbourne. 

Emma has taught at all levels, from first year to postgraduate course work and PhDs. Emma supervises a number of Masters coursework theses each year through the Master of Environmental Management and Master of Planning. Emma is a Member of the Planning Institute of Australia and focuses on liveable cities, and is particularly interested in the challenges and opportunities around increasing bicycle mode share.

Expertise

Emma has wide ranging interests in liveable cities and resilient ecosystems. She has considerable experience in media around walking, cycling and transport planning.

Research Themes

For the past 25 years, Emma's work has been strongly aligned with the University of Tasmania's research theme of Environment, Resources and Sustainability. Her current work focuses on liveable cities and urban planning under the Better Health theme. She specialises in planning for improving walking and cycling as a means of moving around our towns and cities.

With the assistance of PhD, Masters and undergraduate research students, she bridges the action-practice gap between government strategies around active transport and getting changes to our roads and paths. Emma is a founding member of the multi-award winning Sustainability Integration Program for Students) that aligns student work with the operations side of the University.

Collaboration

Dr Emma Pharo is a founding member of the multi-award winning Sustainability Integration Program for Students that aligns student work with the operations side of the University. She represents walking and cycling on the Road Safety Advisory Council, at the state level, and Hobart Bike Advisory Committee at the local government level. She remains active in lobbying for better conditions for bike riders through Bicycle Network Tasmania. These connections to government, industry and not-for-profit allow Emma to bridge between academia and the needs of the community.

Publications

Emma has three main lines of research:

  1. Most of Emma's publications are in the area of forest management and the maintenance of biodiversity. As an expert biologist, Emma has been invited to international meetings to speak about her work on bryophyte diversity in Australian landscapes. One of her highly cited papers is a review paper in a major conservation journal: Pharo, EJ and Zartman, CE*, 'Bryophytes in a changing landscape: The hierarchical effects of habitat fragmentation on ecological and evolutionary processes', Biological Conservation135 (3) pp. 315-325.  doi:10.1016/j.biocon.2006.10.016 ISSN 0006-3207 (2007).
  2. Emma is a 0.8 teaching-intensive academic. She has taken advantage of her focus on teaching to publish in the scholarship of teaching. Using her classrooms for research, she has been awarded Graduate Certificate in University Learning and Teaching and awarded both institutional and national teaching awards. These awards were founded on a strong publication record in high ranking journals.
  3. In line with her teaching responsibilities and active transport outreach, Emma's research has shifted to planning, particularly on walking and cycling and the wider legal, political and social context needed to make the shift to a more active transport system.
