Personal profile

Biography

Dr Scott Heyes is an Associate Professor of Landscape Architecture in the School of Design and Built Environment, Faculty of Arts and Design at the University of Canberra, Australia. He holds prestigious research associate positions at the Smithsonian Institution’s Arctic Studies Center in Washington D.C., and at Trent University’s Frost Centre for Canadian and Indigenous Studies in Canada. His research and teaching interests centre on Indigenous knowledge systems and Indigenous heritage issues in Indigenous Australia, Fiji, and the Inuit homelands of Arctic Canada. He is currently working on design, mapping and oral history projects in these three regions in partnership with Indigenous communities and organisations. He frequently takes students to the field to participate in research projects, including an annual visit to remote parts of Fiji, where students learn about natural systems and Fijian knowledge directly from Indigenous Fijians. He supervises a talented cohort of graduate students who are engaged in design and ethnographic projects. Their research topics include: ethno-astronomy, traditional design methods in Fiji, the establishment of health clinics in remote areas of Indigenous Australia, and understanding Fijian senses of place post-Cyclone Winston.
