Dear ASC-List,

Today's member guest has been a member of ASC since 1996. Before becoming a
science communication academic, Nancy was an agricultural research
scientist and a professional science communicator with a cooperative
research centre. She says, “The early part of my career in agricultural
research provided perspective that has been important for my development as
a professional science communicator and as a science communication
academic.” Living in Perth for 26 years, Nancy developed and delivered the
science communication undergraduate and postgraduate programs at the
University of Western Australia. She was president of the WA ASC branch
from 2004- 2007. During that time, she represented WA on the national ASC
executive committee, serving as Vice President in 2005. In 2014, Nancy was
on the program committee for the ASC conference in Brisbane. She, Claire
Harris and Kali Madden co-edited ASC’s first published conference
proceedings, available at www.asc.asn.au/publications/.

In July, 2014, Nancy joined eight other academic and professional teaching
staff at one of the world's largest postgraduate facility for Science
Communication, the University of Otago's Centre for Science Communication
in Dunedin, New Zealand. Nancy’s research looks at factors that affect
people’s attitudes towards science-related issues. “Our studies have
involved a spectrum of interest levels – people who are or want to become
scientists, people who volunteer to work with scientists, people who want
to know more about science and people who have no apparent interest in
science at all. Ultimately, our aim is to improve relevance and usability
of scientific information as well as effectiveness of science outreach and
engagement,” she says. Join us online today to meet Nancy.
