I am a postdoctoral research fellow with the Monash Climate Change Communication Research Hub. My current research focuses on understanding Australian climate change audiences and their responses to messaging, and how the media represents topics relating to climate change. My broader research interests sit at the intersection of environmental science, communication, and social psychology. I was co-editor of the Research Handbook on Communicating Climate Change (Edward Elgar, 2020), and I teach the university's Climate Change Communication unit. I was also a 2021 member of the Commonwealth Futures Climate Research Cohort of the Association of Commonwealth Universities and the British Council.
