SPEAKER | Stephanie Rotarangi
This seminar will present a PhD proposal by candidate Stephanie Rotarangi. In particular, the presenation will summarise the history of forestry science and define challenges and goals for the New Zealand profession going forward. Stephanie's thesis proposal is to define the elements of forest management models most important to Māori and discuss how policy and forest science enables or constrains such values.
Stephanie is a plantation forester with over 10 years industry experience in the New Zealand context. She has an MSc in Environmental Science from Canterbury University and was the first female to hold the role of 'Forest Manger' in the NZ Plantation industry. Stephanie has been granted a Te Tipu Putaiao Doctoral Fellowship to research the forest management decisions of Maori.
