Personal profile


Associate Professor Schirmer leads the Regional Wellbeing Survey, an annual survey examining the views of 13,000 rural and regional Australians about the liveability and resilience of their community, and their own wellbeing and resilience. It covers topics ranging from understanding how to support carers living in the bush, to identifying the impacts of poor internet connectivity, and understanding how events such as droughts, floods and environmental policy change affect rural communities. In addition to leading the Regional Wellbeing Survey, Jacki's personal research interests focus on understanding the social dimensions of natural resource management, particularly how people's access to and use of natural resources affects their health and wellbeing. Her work in recent years has focused on (i) analysing the social impacts of changes in management of natural resources such as forests, fisheries and water on workers and rural communities, (ii) understanding the factors that drive conflict over natural resource management and which affect social acceptability of environmental policy and practice, and (iii) understanding how to achieve greater adoption of pro-environmental behaviours.
