Dr Jocelyn Davies

PhD (Geography), BA (Geography), BA/Asian Studies

University Fellow

Jocelyn's appointment to the Northern Institute in 2015 as a University Fellow continues collaboration over the past decade following Jocelyn’s move to Alice Springs in 2004 and her appointment as Principal Research Scientist, CSIRO, from 2005 to 2015. Jocelyn was previously based at The University of Adelaide’s Roseworthy Campus (1996 -2002) and then was self-employed in natural resource management planning.  Her PhD, completed in 1995, applied action research methods in community-based planning for Aboriginal land management.  This laid the foundation for her teaching, research and consultancy services to focus on Indigenous Australians and environmental management including co-management of protected areas, and native title claim resolution.  Her earlier career positions as a ranger and protected area planner have ensured  her social research is well grounded in physical geography and ecology and is applied.

In parallel with her 2005 CSIRO appointment, Jocelyn was appointed to the Desert Knowledge Cooperative Research Centre as theme co-leader for governance and as project leader for Livelihoods InLand, focussing on sustainable livelihood development through desert Aboriginal land management.  As part of her research and management roles within CSIRO, Jocelyn led a team of social and ecological researchers based in Alice Springs.  From 2013 she led a group of researchers based in various locations in northern Australia and Brisbane and also led CSIRO’s efforts to integrate social sciences into its international agricultural research for development program, particularly in the Australian government funded Africa Food Security Initiative (2009-2015).
