We are launching a #UCSciCommSeries with UC Berkeley's CLEAR and UC Riverside's SciComm@UCR! Becky Mackelprang is our first speaker on January 18th. She is the Associate Director for Security Programs at the Engineering Biology Research Consortium. Becky received her Ph.D. in Plant Biology in 2017 from UC Berkeley where she studied plant responses to bacterial and fungal pathogens. Interested in supporting science away from the bench, she completed a science communication postdoc with Dr. Peggy Lemaux and was an AAAS Mass Media Fellow at Ensia where she wrote about agriculture and biotechnology. She joined EBRC in 2019 as a postdoc supporting the Security Focus Area and has transitioned to a new role as EBRC’s Associate Director for Security Programs.

The focuses of her talk will be science policy and communication.
