Science Communication and Public Engagement
My involvement with science communication and public engagement is multi-fold:
a) I am the founder and academic advisor of the Science Communication and Public Engagement undergraduate minor at Cornell University. This minor was launched at the beginning of 2020, and already celebrated its first graduates.
b) I teach science communication as part of my introductory biology laboratory course and as a stand-alone course called “Applied Science Communication: Digital Platforms and Public Engagement” on the Cornell campus and at the Shoals Marine Laboratory. This 3-credit course grew out of a Wikipedia editing course I used to teach at Cornell.
c) I conduct education research in science communication, that involves graduate and undergraduate students.
d) I provide science communication and public engagement opportunities for students and faculty, as I built and operate digital makerspace, advise undergraduate clubs that use debate and podcasting to disseminate scientific information, and hold workshops for organizations from the undergraduate level to large national associations.
e) I actively participate in science communication and public engagement as a co-organizer of a science cafe, a co-producer of a science podcast, and as a member of the board of directors of local non-profit science organizations.
