Corinne's research interest is in risk management as a social process of organising that takes place within organisations over long periods of time. Also of interest is how these organising processes intersect with knowledge and expectations of external stakeholders. Prior to the commencement of her PhD Corinne undertook research on abandoned mine management and post-mining land use. This followed 30+ years in land and mine rehabilitation and closure. Corinne has applied her skills and knowledge to industry, government, consulting and research.
