"It is my belief that in order to motivate individuals to take action on climate change, their humanity must be engaged and their minds and hearts moved. Through this research endeavour, I aim to uncover the universal emotions that underpin our human experience; that call to our humanity and catalyse deep and change-making thought." Moulis (2020)

In 2020, I completed a thesis under the supervision of the Faculty of Transdisciplinary Innovation at the University of Technology Sydney, analysing the role of storytelling in climate change communication and education. I presented the novel finding that storytelling experiences have the potential to evoke the same emotions as those exhibited during behaviour-changing life events, alluding to the potential for narratives to motivate and sustain individual action on social issues.

My research was awarded a First Class Honours is scheduled to be presented at the Sydney Climate Action Summit Expo later this year.​
