Bec works as a knowledge exchange specialist with the Climate Change Institute at ANU. Bec's role is to facilitate the strengthening of links between climate change researchers and end users of the research. Before joining the CCI, Bec's research at The University of Queensland explored ways of understanding social conflict about the environment through using the social identity approach to interrogate processes of stakeholder and community engagement. Present research interests include knowledge exchange, the human dimension of climate change, and the links between social psychology and decision-making processes.
