Nancy Golubiewski is an ecosystem ecologist and land system scientist with interdisciplinary experience in both research and policy settings. She pursues exploring interconnections in order to understand socio-ecological integrity and sustainability. Through much of her scientific research, she has investigated the ecological implications of land-use change at a variety of scales (local to national) using field-based measurements, remote sensing analytics, geospatial techniques, and systems analyses. Drawing on this scientific expertise, she also advises on evidence-based environmental policy and management. Currently, she brings all this together in her work as a Senior Researcher in the Research and Evaluation Unit at Auckland Council.
