Post-doctoral research fellow, The University of Queensland

I'm doing a post-doc at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, looking at the legacy of Darwinism and the impact of the Darwinian revolution. I also research the use of narrative in communicating science, especially climate change.

I have a PhD from the University of Queensland, investigating popular science. I have two honours degrees from the Australian National University (2008 & 2013). I also have a Graduate Diploma of Education from the University of Wollongong (2006). I've worked as a high school teacher, managed a community radio station, run a science communication media business and worked as a freelance science communicator (mainly on ABC radio).

I used to present workshops and lectures to the Centre for Public Awareness of Science at ANU.

I'm also writing a book about science, narrative and meaning.
