She is cross-appointed to the School of Policy Studies and the Department of Geological Sciences and Geological Engineering. She holds a PhD in Mining Engineering, a Master of Public Administration and a Master’s of Education (curriculum for engineering and sustainability). She is interested in the ways in which intercultural competence and dialogic ways of thinking can enable engineers to navigate social tensions that arise when communities and industry fail to understand each other’s perspectives. The growing variety, scope and potential for voluntary ESG reporting to advance shared value in the social and EDI space is a theme in current teaching and research. Anne is also Director of Queen’s Graduate Diploma in Social Performance Management in the Extractive Industries (SPMEI).
