Since joining CSRM in 2005, Joni’s work has focused primarily on the impacts of resource extraction on Aboriginal communities in Australia. She has contributed to research projects on Aboriginal employment and business development within the sector, gender issues around mining and communities, social impact assessments, agreements between Aboriginal people and resource companies, and governance. Joni has also contributed to research on investment decision making tools for mining dependent towns.
Prior to joining CSRM Joni worked at the National Native Title Tribunal in Brisbane. Joni holds a Bachelor of Arts (with Honours in Anthropology) from the University of Queensland and a Master of Philosophy, also from the University of Queensland.
