SEI News: We Farewell Anastasia Mortimer

The Sydney Environment Institute farewells Anastasia Mortimer, Knowledge Translation Officer and Content Editor.

Anastasia leaves us to pursue her interest in the impact of climate change on human health, as she commences a master’s degree at Charles Darwin University in 2019.

Anastasia has been the Institute’s Knowledge Translation Officer since 2017, and before that, she was a 2016 SEI Honours Research Fellow. Her thesis examined unequal relations of power between the State Government and Kimberly First Australians in the case of the proposed LNG development on James Price Point.

Since joining the Institute, Anastasia’s passion for environmental justice and sustainable development has continued to be an underlying thread in her work – she has written countless articles and curated blog series, including establishing the popular University of Sydney student blog series, in collaboration with the Master of Sustainability program.

Anastasia’s exceptional management of the SEI blog has played a key role in helping to build the reach of the Institute, developing a platform for SEI’s network of researchers to share their work, and to provide commentary on the environmental issues facing us today.

Anastasia will be sorely missed and we wish her all the very best!


Liberty Lawson, who is currently completing an interdisciplinary PhD at the University of Sydney, will step into the Content Editor role at SEI. Contact Liberty for any blog enquiries: liberty.lawson@sydney.edu.au.
