Annette is an urban and regional planner and has worked on projects related to transport planning, regional and metropolitan development, citizen participation and policy analysis. Currently, she works on the Early delivery of equitable and healthy transport options in new suburbs: Critical reform and tools project, which is funded by RMIT’s Urban Futures Enabling Capabilities Platform (ECP) and partner organisations. For this project, she undertakes policy, spatial and social analyses and also coordinates the project.

Prior to joining RMIT University, Annette was a Research Fellow at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Dortmund, Germany. There, she was part of a research and development project, which explored the involvement of older people into participate neighbourhood development as well as the development and testing of innovative senior-focused technical interaction and communication media.

She has also undertaken research on follow-up costs of planned urban development as well as regional and local effects. This involved an analysis of how practitioners use and assess a GIS-tool box for the assessment of development impacts. Furthermore, she has worked in transport and planning with the Victorian government. Annette’s wider research interests span the areas of metropolitan governance, regional development, community engagement, transport and land use planning.
