This week on #MeetAScientist, get to know Reyhaneh Maktoufi, a science communication researcher getting her PhD at Northwestern University and a producer for the science-inspired storytelling show the Story Collider. In this interview, she chats about her path to science communication. She also shares her latest science-art endeavor, which features insights from women sharing their approaches to weaving empathy and inclusion into their science communication efforts. You can follow her online at @TheCosmicRey.
"When you feel that you are not built to take one single path and follow that one path, don’t interpret this as a weakness or lack of consistency, but realize that this can be your strength. Experiencing different fields and paths gives you a broad perspective, makes you more empathetic, and provides you with a broad set of skills to be creative.”
PhDrinking is the podcast where Sadie interviews fellow PhD graduate students about their research from a variety of fields! Oh, and in case the name didn't give it away, we usually have a drink or two as we chat. ;)
