Hanabeth Luke

Lecturer, School of Environment, Science and Engineering, Southern Cross University
Hanabeth's previous and current research focus consist of:

- Social license to operate
- Barriers to uptake of research and development
- Farmer land management and planning strategies
- Community perceptions of natural resource management
- Extension of GeoScience research, including the rehabilitation of East Trinity, Cairns
- Gender equity in STEMM

In regards to teaching, Hanabeth is the Unit Assessor for Global Environmental Issues and Science in Society. She has been involved with the delivery of a number of units offered by the School of Environment, Science & Engineering since 2011, including Protected Area Management; Geology; Hydrology and Climatology; and Water and Catchment Management.

She began her degree in Coastal Management at Southern Cross University in 2001, graduating in 2005. In 2006 she spent some time in the United Kingdom, gaining a Post Graduate Certificate in Education from the University of Plymouth. After teaching Environmental Science, Geography, World Development and Sociology for several years, she returned to SCU in order hone her teaching and research skills at the School of Environment, Science and Engineering in 2011.

During her Honours year, Hanabeth focused on social dynamics within the growing social movement responding to coal-seam gas (CSG) industry developments in Eastern Australia, with a focus on the use of mind-mapping as a communication tool for group decision-making.

In 2012 she worked with stakeholder groups to develop the question for the Lismore City Council Poll on CSG, implementing an extensive community survey in order to determine voter motivations behind differing community perspectives of the industry. In 2013 she carried out a comparative survey in the neighbouring Richmond Valley area, as well as numerous interviews with residents of the Queensland gasfields.

Her PhD, completed in 2016, is titled: The Role of Social License for Industrial Development in Rural Areas, with a Case Study of Coal Seam Gas in Eastern Australia, she has since published several papers and reports on this topic, with more in process.
