Dear ASC-List,

We have two member guests today.

Today's second member guest Dr Fabien Medvecky is President, Science
Communicators' Association of New Zealand (SCANZ), Lecturer in Science
Communication and Master's Programme Coordinator at The Centre for Science
Communication, University of Otago.

As President of SCANZ (the NZ equivalent of ASC), he was fortunate to
recently organise the annual conference which was held at the Otago Museum
in Dunedin (Nov 14-16). They had over 60 presentations to more than 140
delegates from NZ, AUS, UK, South Africa and more, including ASC members
Toss Gascoigne, Joan Leach, Jenni Metcalfe, Nancy Longnecker, Leonie Rennie
and Sue Stocklmayer.

Fabien cares about value and is especially interested in ethical and
economics values; how we talk about them and include them in our scientific
discourse. His research sits at the intersection between science
communication, science policy, economic theory and ethical theory. His work
focuses on the tension between the objective aims of science and the
value-driven reality of decision making, most notably by concentrating on
ethical and economic issues related to science and the environment.

Before taking up his post in NZ, he was in the Science Communication
Program at the University of Queensland, Australia. He went to New Zealand
armed with a PhD in philosophy of science from the University of Sydney and
a post graduate degree in economics from Murdoch University. He has
published on ethics, economics, ecology, and science communication and
