“Creativity, we think it’s something that scientists don’t do. But we wouldn’t have anyone on the moon, we wouldn’t have vaccines. There are all kinds of things we wouldn’t have if scientists hadn’t stepped outside of those boxes.”
BGM quoted in “To Capture a Bee: Women, Entomology, and Science Illustration” from 2 Million Blossoms, Autumn 2021
I lead communications and strategic planning initiatives for academic, community development, journalism, and public policy organizations. I study, use, and provide training on transdisciplinary approaches to enhance inclusive approaches to public engagement and inform equitable institutional change. I also teach a range of undergraduate and graduate courses on science communication and public engagement. Check out my current projects here.
