Researcher biography

Justine is a Lecturer at the TC Beirne School of Law, teaching undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the areas of environmental law and property law. Justine obtained a PhD from the Queensland University of Technology in 2010, and was awarded an ARC funded Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2011. Justine undertook her postdoctoral research at the Global Change Institute at The University of Queensland, focussing on legal, policy and insurance responses to coastal hazards and sea-level rise. Justine's research focuses on legal mechanisms for protection of the coast, drawing upon environmental, planning, property and tort law. In addition to her work on sea-level rise, Justine is also particularly interested in novel legal mechanisms for protection of coastal ecosystems like mangroves and seagrass, protection of the Great Barrier Reef, and biodiversity offsets in the coastal context. Justine's work is highly multidisciplinary, and she has collaborated widely with researchers from across UQ's faculties and institutes.
