Corrine’s background is in social research, stakeholder communication, and marine-based conflict. Her recent PhD research developed a framework to support decision-making aimed at reducing stakeholder conflict in the Tasmanian salmon industry. In particular, the structural and mechanistic changes that were required for successful operation in the new paradigm of complex communication networks, transnational debate and increasing public unrest.
Her research uses social network analysis and dynamic network modelling to understand the changes observed in coastal communities grappling with conflict issues. These tools provide managers and policy makers the opportunity to pre-test the efficacy of alternative conflict-reducing strategies and policies prior to implementation.
