Profile

Te Pūnaha Matatini Master's student.

After completing undergraduate degrees in Law and Computer Science, I worked in the Justice Sector and as a freelance science writer, helping the Deep South National Science Challenge summarise their 2017 research activities.

My current research is focussed on complexity, risk, and uncertainty in science communication. I also have interests in scientific culture more generally, particularly the potential relationship between science, technology, and contemporary fascist movements.
