Lucinda is interested in maximising conservation effectiveness through planning for multiple objectives, emerging markets and socio-political factors. Also, how to successfully implement research findings and influence policy. Her research identified cost-effective, spatially-explicit priorities for improved fire and grazing management. It also accounted for the influence of carbon credits.
When not trying to save the world, Lucinda enjoys exploring new places, bushwalking, playing music and drinking caipirinha.
