CSIRO is one of my very favourite clients.
Sometimes I have to pinch myself, because I feel like it’s a huge privilege helping some of Australia’s top researchers communicate their findings to a wider audience.
The briefs I receive from the Communications Managers across different CSIRO business units are always very thorough and clear, and every single piece I have written has taught me something. The breadth and depth of work that the national science agency undertakes is truly astonishing.
That diversity is on show if you take a quick look at the last three pieces I wrote for CSIRO.
The first: a look at the importance of biodiversity in water assessments in Northern Australia.
The second: proteins of the future, and how CSIRO is working with companies on precision fermentation.
Finally: an exploration of the work CSIRO is doing with a consortium of other organisations to examine the potential impacts of deep sea mining.
I have three other pieces due to be published in the coming weeks, and they are equally varied: they’re on carbon sequestration, indicator minerals for nickel exploration, and potential impacts on regional branding from gas development. Phew! I’ll look forward to sharing those with you very soon.
