Lilli is a PhD student in the Department of Geography. Prior to joining King’s, she worked as a climate change communication specialist at the Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety (AGES) in Vienna. There she was in charge of developing the national climate change communication strategies and researching risk perception of climate change within society.

She completed an MSc in Global Environment, Politics and Society from the University of Edinburgh, where she investigated how climate change is communicated to various audiences.


Thesis title: 'To co-produce or not to co-produce? A critical examination of the translation of IPCC climate science into national adaptation policies'

Lilli’s research focuses on the translation of IPCC climate science into national adaptation policies to determine whether the concept of co-production works.

Her project aims:

  1. to understand how the IPCC’s communication of science shapes its use in national adaptation policies and decision-making
  2. to examine how, and why, national adaptation policies develop differently across countries
  3. to empirically test the role played by co-production in improving the usability and use of climate science in adaptation policy-making

PhD supervision

Principal supervisor: James Porter
