With a background in the natural sciences and in environmental consulting I developed an interest in how environmental risks were negotiated publicly and how this might interact with governance more broadly. My research has followed environmental campaigns regarding salmon aquaculture in Tasmania, Australia that seek to influence political, corporate and consumer behaviour. This study seeks to understand how environmental conflict is produced, communicated, responded to between stakeholders in the context of regional politics, international trade, environmental sustainability and media.
