After completing her undergraduate studies in environmental science and law, Emily worked for a state government environmental agency on a range of wildlife, land management and regulatory issues.


In 2013, pursuing an interest in international development and environmental issues, Emily began a two year AVID assignment with a small environmental agency on the island State of Kosrae in the Federated States of Micronesia.  There she supported local staff and communities to improve management of near shore coastal resources and mangrove forests and was pleased to provide technical support and encouragement in the finalisation of the first conservation easement in Micronesia, protecting the last remaining stand of a unique Terminalia fresh water wetland.


Emily commenced a PhD in early 2016, investigating the contribution of small-scale fishing activities to livelihoods and food and nutrition security in rural coastal communities in eastern Indonesia.
