Ms Philippa Louey

Commencing her PhD in 2021, Pip Louey’s doctoral research examines the blue economy and the politics of sustainable ocean development in the Pacific Islands region. Her work is interested in how Oceanian actors negotiate the blue economy discourse: how they engage with it, why, and to what effect?

Prior to joining DPA, Pip worked as Engagement Officer at the Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council (ASBEC). She has undertaken a research internship at the Pacific Network on Globalization (PANG) and served as the Project Officer for the UNSW Student Wellbeing Community of Practice (CoP) supporting research on the impact of COVID-19 and related university response measures on student wellbeing.

Pip’s doctoral project is supervised by Prof. Paul D’Arcy, Maureen Penjueli and Hugh Govan.
