Event description

Description

Now, more than ever, it is important that scientists and academics speak passionately and accessibly to the public about how and why they do research. For faculty and staff, it is a critical part of justifying their funding. For graduate students and postdocs, it is a key transferable skill that will prepare them for future careers.

In this public lecture and 2-hour workshop, Jorge Cham (creator of PHD Comics) relays his experiences creating successful science communication projects (videos that have been viewed by millions of people and a book release from Penguin Random House) and communicating his passion for engaging with the public and exploring the unknown.

Jorge Cham is the creator of Piled Higher and Deeper (PHD Comics), the popular comic strip about life (or the lack thereof) in Academia. He is also the co-founder of PHD TV, a video science and discovery outreach collaborative, and a founding board member of Endeavor College Prep, a non-profit school for kids from disadvantaged communities in East Los Angeles.
