The egg drop activity during our physics summer camp program

I work full time as a Communications Coordinator (outreach, grant writing, event planning, website, and probably more that I cannot recall at the moment) at the Department of Physics & Astronomy, University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada). Before that, I studied biochemistry for undergrad, and went on to get my MSc in experimental medicine. My thesis is available on the UBC cIRcle repository (accessible by the public).

I know, it is weird that I ended up working for physics and astronomy, but that only made me more curious about pretty much all areas of science.

Reading and writing about science is my passion. I believe that everyone should have access to an understanding of science regardless of social status.

This blog is my personal blog so opinions are of my own. If you are interested in how I got into science communication, check out an interview of me on the Speaking of Science website. I also moderate the Science Communication in Canada Google+ Community with Lisa Willemse. If you enjoy my writing style or the work I do, and would like to involve me in other commissioned projects (I am already “volunteered-out”), please contact me via the following channels.
