Peter O'Rourke

Communications & Events Officer

Managing communications and events at the Fenner School of Environment & Society since 2019, it’s Peter’s job to tell the stories of the School – from the experiences of our students, to the amazing work of our researchers.

With a background in journalism, public relations, and event management, Peter brings a wealth of knowledge and media expertise to the school. This includes writing for different audiences, creating engaging content through multimedia, graphic design, managing the School's media platforms, and overseeing the creation and running of events. He often works on projects collaboratively with the College of Science, and the wider ANU marketing team.

During his communications career, Peter has worked in diverse agencies across Federal Government, the Not-for-Profit sector, in radio production at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, and even as a video journalist at Parliament House in Canberra for Australian Associated Press. Peter holds a Double Degree in International Studies & Journalism from the University of Canberra, and also runs his own indie record label.
