I am currently serving on the editorial board of the Duke Science Review, an interdisciplinary science review journal that aims to showcase Duke's research for the community. As Associate Editor, I consult with the Editors in Chief to curate topics for the upcoming issue, meet with writers to refine story ideas, and edit stories for clarity and scientific integrity.
In addition to my editing experience, I also write about opportunities to engage with the public about science in order to encourage scientists to communicate their work, and I give general professional development advice for STEM students. I do this on my personal blog as well as external media outlets as listed below:
- Branching Out From the Ivory Tower: Using Outreach to Enhance Your Professional Development, a blog post published on the Duke University Graduate School Professional Development blog
- Life Science PhD Program Interview Tips, a blog post for PhD applicants, published on the Grad Student Slack blog
- "Twitter, Meet Scientists" (in press), an introduction to Twitter for scientists to learn to communicate their stories to the public, published by The Xylom
I am also currently exploring opportunities to write about recent scientific discoveries for non-scientist audiences. I was recently selected to attend ComSciCon-Triangle 2019 (Communicating Science Conference, Research Triangle Satellite Workshop), a regional science communication conference for graduate students, through which I will be writing and publishing an original article to communicate my work. Check back soon for writing samples in other media outlets.
