Jason Byrne is a Professor of Human Geography and Planning. He researches urban political ecologies of green-space, climate change adaptation, and environmental justice. He has over 100 scholarly publications, including a multi-award-winning co-edited book - Australian Environmental Planning: Challenges and Future Prospects (Routledge). Professor Byrne has previously been awarded the Planning Institute Australia’s national award for cutting edge research and teaching, and has twice been awarded the PIA Queensland award in that category – as well as their overall award for planning excellence.

Biography

Before joining the University of Tasmania, Jason was an Associate Professor of Urban and Environmental Planning at Griffith University, Gold Coast, Queensland. Jason completed his PhD at the University of Southern California (2007) and was awarded a commendation for his doctoral research on urban and national parks and social disadvantage. Jason was a Senior Fellow at Johns Hopkins University Institute for Policy Studies (1999), where he researched environmental inequality. Prior to becoming an academic, Jason worked as a planning officer, environmental officer and policy writer with the Western Australian government. He now provides research consultancy services to the Queensland Government and City of Gold Coast Council. Jason is on the editorial board for Local Environment and Journal of Political Ecology, and has made regular radio appearances on ABC radio, as well as television interviews.

Expertise

  • Park and Recreation Planning
  • Green Infrastructure (e.g. street trees, green walls, green roofs)
  • Environmental Health Equity
  • Climate Change Adaptation
  • Planning Policy
  • Cities and Urban Landscapes
  • Urban and Environmental Planning
  • Healthy Cities

Research Themes

Jason’s research aligns to the University’s research theme of Environment, Resources and Sustainability. Specifically, Jason’s research addresses the spatial and social distribution of urban greenspace and green infrastructure. He examines how marginalised and disadvantaged communities are affected by greenspace access and service provision (environmental justice) and how the deployment of green infrastructure as a climate change adaptation strategy may affect urban residents – both human and non-human (thermal equity). Jason has studied the socio-spatial dimensions of urban parks and protected areas, community gardens and urban trees. More recently, Jason has been working on Australian Research Council funded projects investigating social innovation for climate change adaptation and the use of greenspace as a health intervention for children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
