Corey manages science and miscellaneous policy projects at the Climate Institute (TCI). Established in 2005, unencumbered by vested interests, TCI works to inform the policy debate with evidence-based analysis, solutions, and a better understanding of the risks. Corey works with scientists and communicators to promote climate literacy and ensure the conversation doesn’t wander too far off into la-la land.
Hailing from Western Australia, Corey studied biology at Murdoch University and later convinced the University of Melbourne to award him a Master’s in policy and the environmental history of wine. He has worked in environmental science and policy development, and spent eight years at the Australian Conservation Foundation, trying to figure out what sustainable agriculture means and then campaigning for it. He has spent a lot of time talking science in town halls, pubs, paddocks, boardrooms, and in the media. He lives in Melbourne, with two cats, a dog, and a long-suffering bay laurel tree.
