Research Fellow, School of Public Health, The University of Adelaide
I spent a lot of my childhood in the Royal National Park, just south of Sydney, either walking, mountain-biking, or simply suffering on long Scout hikes in the rain. I think this may have helped me develop a love for the bush and the environment, and appreciate what we can learn from spending time in it.
I am a researcher and social psychologist from the School of Public Health at The University of Adelaide.
I have been working for 7 years on climate change and natural hazards communication, and am particularly keen on improving the resilience of diverse communities in the face of more intense and frequent heatwaves, bushfires, and other natural hazards that climate change is driving.
I have the great pleasure to work with the emergency services and non-government agencies to help improve the relevance and accessibility of natural hazards and emergency warnings and information for all sectors of the public, including those with a refugee background.
