Nic is a PhD candidate in the Resources, Environment & Development (RE&D) Department at the Crawford School of Public Policy. His research is looking at social attitudes towards climate change - specifically framing - in the Australian context.
What he is interested in my research is building up more of a nuance understanding of climate change framing in the Australian context as a lot of research has been focused on the US, UK, and Europe. He is taking a mixed method approach including systematic evidence synthesis; qualitative interviews; and quantitative surveys to try and investigate different aspects of what framing is; how it’s useful; and the different role it can play in communication and engaging people with complex environmental issues (with a focus on climate change).
