Mitacs Science Policy Fellow, University of Victoria

I published with the Conversation in Australia where I had managed communications for the CSIRO Climate Change Adaptation Flagship and the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF). My PhD research asked Australian and Canadian climate change professionals in research, policy and practice how they talk in their personal circles about adapting to climate change over the next twenty years. My academic publications include book chapters and the title "Communicating Climate Change Information for Decision-Making", which I contributed to and co-edited. I am currently a Mitacs Science Policy Fellow with the B.C. Ministry of Agriculture and affiliated with the University of Victoria. My first journal publication is now in press with 'Futures' and I would like to write in the conversation on the topic. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0016328718300478
