Dr Jane Richardson Physical Geography

Research Development and Grant Writer

College of Humanities and Social Sciences

Research/Project Officer

Centre for Defence and Security Studies

Dr Richardson's research background is physical geography, and more specifically, the influence of climate and anthropogenic change on river systems in New Zealand. Her PhD research examined the impact that climate change and human settlement has had on rivers in Northland. In recent years her professional interests have turned to collaborative interdisciplinary research projects and Massey Living Labs. In 2013 she project managed the Consolidating Sustainability Project – a project which improved institutional connectivity around teaching, research, and operational aspects of sustainability. This was followed by a project management role in a Living Lab based in Taranaki – Sharing the Waiwhakaiho. In this project, researchers and creative professionals worked with stakeholders to collect and interpret social, cultural and environmental content in innovative ways. Dr Richardson is currently working as a research officer on Project Dairy 1. Project Dairy 1 has been established to create an environment for collaborative multidisciplinary research to deliver innovative solutions around issues of environmental stewardship, community engagement and animal health and welfare in dairy farming. She is also involved in a Massey-Ngaruahine collaboration (Kia haumako ana ngā awa tawhito o Ngāruahine) as the Massey link person and fluvial geomorphologist. This project is aiming to weave mātauranga Māori and ‘western science’ to improve the health of rivers within Ngāruahine rohe.

Dr Richardson has a strong interest in helping to develop new ways of working across academic silos and working at higher levels of collaboration and engagement than have occurred in the past. To this end she is involved in developing the Massey Living Lab approach as a way of enhancing innovation and producing new knowledge in order to address real world challenges. She is also working with the College of Humanities and Social Sciences Food Network.

 

 

Jane’s current role is supporting collaborative projects, Living Labs (LL), network and stakeholder relationships in connection with the themes of agrifood and sustainability. Prior to this role her research activity was in the field of fluvial geomorphology. Jane has been involved in a number of collaborative LL and projects where there is a need to connect across institutional boundaries and with external stakeholders in order achieve the project goals. Past projects have included the Consolidating Sustainability Project and Sharing the Waiwhakaihio LL. Jane is currently involved with Project Dairy 1, the CoHSS Food Network and a Massey-Ngaruahine
collaboration.
