With an interest in the more-than-human assemblages of coastal areas and a research background in sociology, environmental science, and international coastal resource management, Malcolm continues to find himself at the intersection of community-based management and integrated ecosystem-based management of coastal and marine protected areas. Drawing on his past experiences, his PhD research explores the relationships between assigned landscape values, perceived climate change risks, and socio-ecological discourses in the Huon Valley coastalscape. Employing a hybrid methodology that includes hydro-spatial decision support systems, semi-structured interviews, public participation GIS, and Q-method, this projects aims to reconsider the framing of climate change adaptation through an object-oriented landscape theoretical lens.
