I'm a multimedia producer and journalist with a focus on science, health and environment reporting and a special interest in the intersection of these issues with indigenous culture. I was a Wolfson Press Fellow in 2019 researching misinformation in science. In 2020, I'm expanding my research through the Democracy Discourse Series under De La Salle University. I've published in Malay and English. Before journalism, I studied ecology and ethology of bats, monkeys and humans. Twitter: @tinacarmillia | Linkedin: www.linkedin.com/in/tinacarmillia
