Louise Bardwell

Research Assistant
ANU College of Engineering & Computer Science

I am passionate about driving the world's sustainable and equitable pathway to decarbonisation through the use of renewable energy systems and social change. With a background in Engineering and Pacific/Asian studies, I believe that all research should be transdisciplinary, incorporating the diversity and complexity of the techno, economic, social, and cultural factors that underpin all aspects of human's actions. Alongside my research work, I am interested in Humanitarian Engineering and the foundational role it should play in engineering practice, and understanding the process of decolonising methodologies to allow engagement with First Nations people and Indigenous knowledge systems.
