Brief description

My research project focuses on a small selection of scientist-produced climate blogs, exploring the way these blogs connect into, and form part of, broader climate science communication. I use a qualitative multiple-case study research method, which involves analysis of the blogs’ content, as well as semi-structured in-depth interviewing of both bloggers and readers/commenters.
