Home Hello! My name is Lauren Griffin and this is my personal website. My background is in environmental sociology and communications. My research agenda is driven by a desire to help communicate with the public effectively on social justice issues and science. My current focus is on climate change communications, narrative persuasion, and misinformation. Additionally, I’ve conducted research on the environmental impacts of tourism and social movements. In addition to research, I write and publish original content using social sciences research to help explain current events. I also work with nonprofit organizations on communications strategy and social media. I’m passionate about helping people who are working for good causes become more successful. I currently work for the College of Journalism and Communications at the University of Florida.
