Research Communications Officer, Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture (TIA) – University of Tasmania
Claire Baker manages communications for various food science and agricultural research projects within the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture (TIA), a joint venture of the University of Tasmania and the Tasmanian Government.
Claire is dedicated to communicating new research and ideas — in the past she has taken up this challenge working for two of New Zealand’s public art galleries and for a NZ-wide tertiary project called Engaged Social Science (eSocSci), managed by Massey University in Wellington. For eSocSci, Claire supported social scientists to digitally publicise their research and helped to connect their work with emerging environmental science through networking events and online platforms.
Claire has also worked as a statutory social worker and in local government and community sector policy for the New Zealand Government.
