Naomi’s research focuses on the role of design in strengthening communities of resilience for sustainable futures, where design is examined in the capacity of a change agent in the arena of community resilience and adaptive capacity in a changing climate.  Naomi has a strong commitment to the development of socially and environmentally responsible design practice working on collaborative projects with community, industry partners, regional councils, and not for profit groups. Specifically, she has extensive experience across stakeholder relations, co-design processes, and best practice processes on multi-actor teams. Naomi's spatial design practice encompasses commercial and hospitality projects in Australia and South-East Asia.
