Current work


I am a fellow of the Office of the Prime Minister’s Chief Science Advisor, and am writing a report on mission-led science communication and engagement in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Current clients include: the Resilience to Nature’s Challenges National Science Challenge, the Extreme Weather Research Platform, GNS Science, Our Land and Water National Science Challenge, and Te Ao Hurihuri Te Ao Hou: Our Changing Coast.

I am also on the Board of SCANZ, the Science Communicator’s Association of New Zealand.

I tried to build the complete set of the 11 National Science Challenges, but only managed to work for six. Science for Technological Innovation, Our Land and Water, Resilience to Nature’s Challenges, Building Better Homes Towns and Cities, New Zealand’s Biological Heritage, and Deep South.

I’m also proud to have set up the communications for the international Sensitivity of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet to global warming of 2°C (SWAIS 2C) project.
