Biography

Over the last decade Dr Farrelly has investigated various governance and institutional mechanism within the Australian urban water sector to advance a transformation in the functionality and liveability of urban and rural environments. Her research interests span environmental governance, sustainability transitions, experimentation, learning and evaluation. Her current research focuses on the intersection of multiple infrastructure sectors (i.e. water, energy, green infrastructure), in order to understand what role this nexus plays in bringing about policy and practice change. In addition, and supported by PhD researchers, DrFarrelly has begun to explore the urban water governance challenges within Bangladesh and Indonesia. Dr. Farrelly has been heavily involved in the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities, which seeks to inform the development of sustainable, resilient and productive cities and towns. She has led various social science research projects (i) examining how to transform storm water management practices; (ii) bridging evaluation studies, impact assessment and research adoption to inform the development of an evaluation and learning framework to support large-scale, complex research projects achieve maximum impact. Resulting from this body of research Dr Farrelly has been engaged in a number of external consultancies for Government Agencies and local governments.
