    #60 After Hours Insta – Balancing a 9-5 Job while Crushing it on Social Media (with Sevim Aktas, EU Policy Influencer)

    For many of us researchers, communicating science is something that we do in addition to writing papers, teaching, supervising, and acquiring research grants. Sometimes, it can be overwhelming because it comes on top of all the other responsibilities. However, today's guest demonstrates that one doesn't need to be overwhelmed to be successful on social media while maintaining a regular job.

    #58 How to be a climate scientist, a content creator and write a bestseller all at once (Prof. Kimberly Nicholas, Lund University)

    #58 How to be a climate scientist, a content creator and write a bestseller all at once (Prof. Kimberly Nicholas, Lund University)

    How to juggle research work, supervision, and science communication? It can be challenging at times to bring all of it together. In this episode, we learn how Prof. Kimberly Nicholas manages this challenge. Kimberly has a PhD from Stanford (note: fixed typo here), has written dozens of peer-reviewed journal papers, and on the side, she creates climate science content. She runs a newsletter and has cultivated a community of 15 000+ followers on Twitter. Pretty impressive. In this episode, she tells us how she juggles all these things and how she defines the impact of science communication.

    You find her obviously on Twitter and also on LinkedIn.
