Anthropologist, facilitator, writer

I study and write about the relationship between humans and the more-than-human-world, questioning the categories of ‘nature’ and ‘culture’.

My research is concerned with the cultural and psychological dimensions of climate change: beyond adaptation and mitigation, I am interested in the possibility for transformation that climate change represents. In particular, I explore how local communities in Australia navigate the reality of their vulnerability and responsibility as they come to terms with what climate change means in their daily lives. My PhD research was based in the Blue Mountains, NSW.

I also design and facilitate workshops for those coming to terms with the complex alchemy of hope and despair in these times of climate crisis.
