Dr. Emma Frances Bloomfield completed her PhD in Communication Studies at the University of Southern California and is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Her research focuses on science communication and the intersection of science and religion, especially pertaining to controversial topics such as human origins, climate change, and vaccines.

Her first book, Communication Strategies for Engaging Climate Skeptics: Religion and the Environment, analyzed how Christians negotiate their environmental identity and how we can engage religion and the environment in conversation. Her work broadly addresses the various resources people use to make sense of their realities and reach decisions, from science, religion, policies, economics to values, storytelling, and identity.
