Maurizio Toscano

Lecturer in Science Education, Melbourne Graduate School of Education, University of Melbourne

Dr Maurizio Toscano is a Lecturer in the Melbourne Graduate School of Education with an interest in interdisciplinary approaches to understanding and communicating climate change. Maurizio’s approach to climate change is informed by the breadth of his academic experiences: his doctoral training was in astrophysics; he has undertaken and supervised research into the role of aesthetics and the scientific imagination in science education; he has explored the relationship between art and science through collaborations with artists (eg the Syzygy project) and more recently has been examining perspectives on environmental and science education that draw upon the works of philosophers such as Wittgenstein, Heidegger and Cavell.
