Kathleen Harriden

Kathleen Harriden is a PhD student at ANU Fenner School of Environment and Society, and is particularly interested in including traditional ecological knowledge in urban water management practices and policy development.

She is an advocate of multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary research, as evidenced in much of her previous research from slums as environmental actors to opening the black box of intra-household water use, and plans to continue combining water science with social science during her PhD research.

Kate is the current holder of the Icon Water Aspi Baria Scholarship. She has held positions on a number of committees, including the Australian Water Association ACT Branch Committee and the Australian Association for Environmental Education ACT and National committees.
