Tahnee Burgess

Working and publishing in Climate Change Communication, Tahnee is passionate about climate action and helping people understand the complex impacts of climate change. With a background in international studies and climate science, Tahnee has worked in a number of volunteer roles alongside her role as a researcher at the Monash Climate Change Communication Research Hub. Her work has covered topics ranging from the sonification of cyclones to communicating localised climate shifts.

At COP24, she is eager to apply her knowledge of both climate science and policy, having previously worked tracking Australia’s emissions and the media reporting of climate change. She is hoping this first-hand experience will inform her work in communicating the multifaceted challenges that climate change will bring.
