Science Communication through visual and digital mediums
I am an experienced scientist passionate about science communication, multi-disciplinary projects, and online learning and engagement approaches. It is critical that we find new strategies to communicate scientific findings and engage the public. Using online learning and visualization methods, I am exploring visual science communication to support online education and science communication and education. Although classically trained as a research scientist in pharmacology, I consider myself a science communication designer with skills ranging from project management, pedagogical approaches to online learning, video production, instructional design, and web design. With a foundation as a cross-disciplinary team member, I am interested in developing and utilizing these skills to produce science education, marketing, communication, and engagement strategies, particularly those at the intersection of art and science.
ArtLab is a cross-disciplinary effort that explores the intersection of art with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, medicine, and design. Emphasizing a cross-disciplinary approach that draws from media, art, and design, we aim to nurture a vibrant intellectual community at the intersections of these disciplines with a focus on exhibition and outreach opportunities.
From Drug Discovery Online to virtual program development, I am interested in designing rich online spaces that support interactivity and facilitate learning for all participants.
Video allows both visual and audio delivery of material. But how do you optimize this medium for science communication? How do create engaging science content? What makes a science communication video "good"?
