Daniela Vianna, Ph.D. is a Visiting Postdoctoral Researcher at the Center for Climate Change Communication. She is a journalist and environmental scientist who is currently supported by the Capes Foundation (a Brazilian federal agency).
Her research is focused on developing a methodology for monitoring and communicating advances and challenges in the Paris Agreement ongoing process. The project’s objective is to gather national emissions information and present it in an engaging visual tool that will help journalists and others report on each country’s compliance with their commitments made in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
Daniela is also interested in how to narrow the gap between journalists and scientists in a way that improves the quality of the coverage about climate change. Other areas of interest include subjects connected with behavior change, environmental journalism, and health and environmental risk communication. Her dissertation utilized content analysis methodology to analyze how two major newspapers in Brazil covered environmental issues.
Daniela earned both her PhD in Environmental Science and her specialization in Environmental Health at the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil.Return To People & Partners
