Dr Cristyn Meath is the Hub Director, Sustainable Infrastructure Research Hub at the University of Queensland, a Senior Lecturer at The University of Queensland Business School where she teaches Decision Making & Reporting for Sustainability in the Masters of Business, and Co-Founder of the Infrastructure CoLab.

Cristyn's research investigates how to increase the adoption of sustainable products and practices in industries by improving understanding of the way individual employees, organisations, governments and consumers make decisions related to sustainability. Cristyn has spent a number of years investigating sustainable materials adoption in infrastructure and also co-designing solutions with industry and government to support the transition towards decarbonisation and circular economy. Other sustainability challenges examined in her research include climate change, the energy transition, natural capital decline, circular economy and economic inequality focusing on change enablers such as decision making, corporate reporting, emerging technology, and new collaboration models supporting industry-led sustainability transitions.

Prior to commencing at UQ Business School Cristyn worked with numerous businesses to improve their sustainability, advising business sustainability consultants, and delivering guest lecturers on the topic.
