Welcome to my blog. Here I report on new developments in the field of communication and persuasion.

When I graduated with a masters degree in communication I thought I would keep myself up to date with new studies in the field, and publish short reports for anyone else who might be interested.

I’m now completing a masters degree in science communication at the Australian National University.

As I’ve also had more than 20 years’ experience in political and government communication in Australia and therefore I hope to report on findings in communication science from the perspective of both an interested scholar and a practitioner.

Yet the more I read, the more I realise I still have plenty to learn about the science of communication and persuasion. And I love being able to keep learning in this way.

I hope you get something out of it too.
