When she's not studying science educators or other science podcasts and blogs, she can be found out on the trails or attempting to bake puff-pastry from scratch because the ""Great British Baking Show"" told her she could do it (she can't).
Why is science communication important to you?
Science is an amazing human endeavor! It is full of curiosity, successes, failures, failures that are accidental successes, and all of it helps us learn more about this world we live in. Everyone should be able to access what science has to offer. Big words, funny names, dense writing, and pricey journal paywalls often prevent the majority of people (even other scientists!) from being exposed to and understanding all the interesting things scientists are doing. It is so important to find creative ways to overcome these obstacles in science communication so scientific discoveries and theories can be something enjoyable to nerds, laypeople, intellectual explorers, and curious cats alike.
