Marina is a researcher in the field of governance and public policy with a particular interest in road safety, urban planning, and resource management. Her work investigates transformative policy solutions that  aim to create safer, more liveable communities.  A starting point for responsive policy solutions is recognising emerging  trends to better anticipate and prepare for societal change. Another focus of her research is mapping political systems in order to understand the opportunities and constraints within government processes. This work explores the formal and informal policy networks that influences decision making across different levels of government. Marina is currently working on a range of research projects across road safety and knowledge transfer in both domestic and international contexts.
