Dear ASC-List,

Today's member guest has just finished his PhD at the University of New
South Wales where he is an Associate Lecturer. While his PhD research was
on vertebrate sampling methodology, Dustin’s Masters in Science
Communication at the Centre for Public Awareness of Science (ANU) examined
characteristics of successful science communication on YouTube. Dustin
regularly gives public talks and writes articles on biological sciences and
philosophy, for which he has won several awards, and participates in the
Scientists in Schools program. At current, Dustin and six other scientists
around Australia are currently running a project with local school groups
where they are conducting invertebrate surveys. The aim of the project is
to assist the students to write a scientific paper for publication to give
them first-hand experience participating in the scientific process. Join us
online today to meet Dustin.

Dustin also moderates the popular active ASC Facebook group. You can join
