I’m Matt Nurse and I’m a PhD researcher at the Australian National University‘s faculty of science.

I have been a professional communicator for more than 20 years, advising governments how to develop effective objective-based communication strategies. I have been a communication director for both state and federal governments with experience in treasury, education, transport, industry, agriculture and emergency communications. I have a masters degree in science communication from ANU and a masters degree in communication from Deakin University.

At ANU I am researching science-related misinformation during the COVID-19 pandemic.

On this site I write about communication science as someone who has a research interest in communication and as an experienced communications practitioner.
