    Random Walk 16: ComSciConCan #3 with Gracielle Higino

    Random Walk 16: ComSciConCan #3 with Gracielle Higino

    THIS WEEK: Gracielle grew up in Brazil immersed in science (communication). Her dream has always been to be a scientist by day, and writer by night. She currently studies computational ecology at Université Montréal, and we talk about her work, communicating science, and the difficulties English Second Language (ESL) researchers have. Some of her work includes organizing SciComm training with IGNITE.

    CHECK OUT: SciComm in Portuguese: https://github.com/graciellehigino/divulgacao-cientifica-pt/blob/master/lista.md…  (ap.mcmaster.ca/mcauth/login.jsp?app_id=1505&app_name=Avenue)

    Random Walk 13: Dr. Shoshana Jacobs on Seabirds and the New Normal in Academia

    Random Walk 13: Dr. Shoshana Jacobs on Seabirds and the New Normal in Academia

    Dr. Jacobs is an assoc. professor at the University of Guelph studying seabird ecology, with what I would call an extra special focus on mentorship, knowledge transfer, and equity in academia. We talked about academia's response to the "C" word; the opportunities but also the long-range issues it may cause. You HAVE to listen to this one.
