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, and understanding how various aspects of climate change are represented by the media. She also teaches 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, which involved statistical modelling, quantitative meta-analysis, and practitioner interviews.

Lucy is co-editor of the Edward Elgar Research Handbook on Communicating Climate Change, and she has work published in the Journal of Social Issues and Oxford Bibliographies Online. She has also presented research on sustainability and climate change and facilitated workshops at conferences held by the Society of Australasian Social Psychologists, the American Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues, the Australasian Evaluation Society, the International Communication Association, and NRM Regions Australia.
