Few people have experience in science communication and political communication.
I’m Matt Nurse and I run this small consultancy called Communication Science. I’m a sessional lecturer at the Australian National University’s faculty of science where I teach and research science communication, but I’m available to consult on a small number of projects every year.
Before this I was a professional communicator, helping governments develop effective and objective-based communication strategies for more than 20 years. I have been a communication director for both state and federal governments with experience in education, transport, industry, agriculture and emergency communication. I have a masters degree in science communication from ANU and a masters degree in communication from Deakin University. I recently submitted my PhD in Science Communication at ANU, where I researched the individual predictors for sharing misinformation about COVID-19.
