Knowledge Exchange Specialist, Australian National University

Dr Rebecca Colvin is the Knowledge Exchange Specialist of the Climate Change Institute at the Australian National University. Bec's role with the CCI is to facilitate the strengthening of links between climate change researchers and end users of the research.

In this space, Bec’s research interests include how people connect to each other to bridge disciplinary divides, and the social influences on decision-making. Before joining the CCI, Bec's research at The University of Queensland explored ways of understanding social conflict about the environment through using the social identity approach to interrogate processes of stakeholder and community engagement.
