Supervised by Dave, Pauline Marsh, Emily Flies and others, this project will explore the interrelationships between nature and human subjective wellbeing in cities and towns in Tasmania, to understand how the lived experience of biodiverse nature intersects with wellbeing and related health and social outcomes. The project aims to develop a better understanding of environmental health outcomes in regional cities for different peoples (e.g. diverse values, cultural backgrounds, socioeconomics, health profiles), the role of different landscape and biodiversity features in shaping those outcomes, and to make recommendations for health policy, urban planning and regional development that positively improve health and biodiversity outcomes. The methods applied to explore these questions could include combinations of qualitative and quantitative social research methods, spatial analysis and biophysical field data collection.
