Lucy Richardson

Lucy is a postdoctoral research fellow with the Monash Climate Change Communication Research Hub. Her current research focuses on understanding Australian climate change audiences and their responses to messaging. She also tutors and guest lectures in the university’s Climate Change Communication unit.

With her broader research interests sitting at the intersections of environmental science, communication, and social psychology, Lucy’s PhD examined these intersections in the context of climate change mitigation behaviour and incorporated statistical modelling, quantitative meta-analysis, and practitioner interviews.

Lucy is currently co-editing the Edward Elgar Research Handbook on Communicating Climate Change, and has work published in the Journal of Social Issues and Oxford Bibliographies Online. She has also presented her research and facilitated workshops at conferences held by the Society of Australasian Social Psychologists and the American Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues.
