Dr Cobi Calyx is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Social Impact, primarily with UNSW Sydney, but working remotely on Kaurna yerta in southern Adelaide. At Flinders she is also part of the Climate and Sustainability Policy Research group.

Cobi has more than a decade of experience working internationally across science communication, health promotion and environmental governance, with organisations ranging from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation to the United Nations. She is an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, reflecting her educational expertise.

Cobi lives on Kaurna yerta with her family, settlers of British, Dutch, Giernési, Irish and Mauritian Creole heritage. She is multilingual and supports endangered language revival, currently focused on Kaurna and Guernésiais.
