Centre Social Impact

Dr Cobi Calyx joined the Centre for Social Impact in mid-2019 to catalyse a collaboration with UNSW Science about leading science for impact. Cobi has more than a decade of experience working internationally across science communication, health promotion and environmental governance, with organisations ranging from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation to the United Nations.

Cobi is an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, reflecting her educational expertise. She is on the Management Committee of the Australian Citizen Science Association and a member of the Flinders Climate and Sustainability Policy Research Group.

Though an early career academic, she is experienced in media production and presenting for diverse audiences. Examples include an interactive network map about international forestry laws, performances about science heroes or the maths of Alice in Wonderland, and news of progress on the global development goals

Cobi lives on Kaurna yerta with her family, settlers of Cornish, Dutch, English, Giernesi, Irish, Mauritian and Scottish heritage. She is multilingual and supports endangered language revival, currently focused on Kaurna and Guernésiais. She has lived on five continents, including a year with the Asia Indigenous Peoples' Pact, which informed and shaped her ongoing support for Aboriginal self-determination, noting sovereignty in Australia was never ceded. She supports the Uluru Statement from the Heart
