Liz Neeley Lecture: A Theory of Change: The Latest in Science Communication Research and Practice

September 17, 2014 5:30am to 6:30am

The focus will be on blending the academic communication with the case studies and hard-won lessons from those researchers and science communicators who are out there doing the work.

Liz Neeley, Assistant Director of Science Outreach, helps develop and lead communications trainings for scientists, and she specializes in the social media and multimedia components of workshops and outreach efforts for COMPASS. Before joining COMPASS, Liz studied the evolution and visual systems of tropical reef fishes at Boston University. After grad school, she helped communities and researchers in Fiji and Papua New Guinea connect their knowledge of local coral reefs ecosystems to the media. She also dabbled in international science policy while working on trade in deep-sea corals. Liz is currently based in Seattle, at the University of Washington.
