I am a PhD candidate at the School of Communication at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver. I am examining the extent to which a solutions-oriented approach to climate change reporting offers an improvement over conventional news narratives and frames with respect to the requirements of effective climate change communication. In addition to this work, I am a national television news producer with over 15 years experience (currently on a leave of absence from that position). I also have an Master’s degree from Tsinghua University in Beijing. I worked on a project examining land rights in China. I speak English, French, Spanish, Mandarin and Farsi. I am currently learning Russian.
