What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your research
I am a PhD student studying the sequence of events leading to the establishment of transcription in the nuclear space of the developing embryo.
What are you excited about in science communication?
Making science and the ‘scientific method’ accessible and understandable to lots of people instead of currently a privileged few so that people with different paths of life and views can be brought together and ensured a seat at the table for discussion.
Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellow program?
I want to be a better advocate of preprints and emphasize how they can communicate science efficiently to both the interdisciplinary scientific community and the general public. I believe that the program will give me the tools to become a better communicator. ASAPbio helps to make the academic environment and publishing culture more inclusive and open, and I am excited to be a part of this change.
