Phd Student, Digital Media Research Centre, Queensland University of Technology

Aleesha advocates for climate justice and focuses on the intersection of the environment, technology, and society.

Her current research uses digital media tools to detect, visualise, and analyse the issues raised in online public debates about big batteries in Australia – starting with the Hornsdale Power Reserve in South Australia. The aim of her research is to provide clarity on how the Australian public is receiving big batteries while the industry is seeding.
