It was a privilege for UC Berkeley CLEAR to host Niba Nirmal (@NotesByNiba) for the #UCSciCommSeries. Niba is a Multimedia Producer and Digital Strategist at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBL). She received a bachelor’s in Genetics and Genomics from UC Davis, completed a master’s in Genetics at Duke University and earned a Science Communication Certificate from Northwestern University.
Our second speaker in our #UCSciCommSeries focused on Dr. Brittany Anderton, the Associate Director of Research Talks at iBiology. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the work of iBiology, their content consists of educational videos for all sorts of crowds. Some of their videos contain content for students trying to learn more about a particular topic, and some are about special-interest topics from high-profile researchers.
In the second-to-last installment of the #UCSciCommSeries, we've invited Colin Murphy to discuss science policy and sustainability. He is the Deputy Director of the Policy Institute for Energy, Environment, and the Economy at UC Davis.
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.
