If you couldn't tell, I love puns. Especially science puns! Considering this round of featured scientists work with soil profiles, plant research, and how invasive species impact forests and water consumption, it would be an insilt to not write some unbeleafably terrible puns. I hope you can all photosympathize with me ... :)
All joking aside, the next three aspiring science communicators are partaking in some fantastic research. Chelsea Duball is a soil scientist studying how ecological communities instigate soil development, whereas Dan Beverly is focusing on the consumption habits of upland plants. Meanwhile, Heather Speckman researches the impacts of the invasive bark beetle on water flow regimes. Definitely take a listen, and feel free to comment!

Good evening, and welcome back to the University of Wyoming's science communication blog! Melanie Torres here, and I'm introducing two more of our aspiring science communicators via the 60-second or so interview assignment we completed last week.
While Michelle Mason and Cody Porter are from two different backgrounds, they both are doing some pretty fantastic research for their PhDs here at the University of Wyoming! Michelle's research focuses on supermassive black holes, whereas Cody is studying speciation in birds. Have a listen and enjoy!

Hello everyone, and welcome back to the University of Wyoming's science communication blog, Engage Laramie Science!
Today, I want to introduce some of the aspiring science communicators via an assignment we completed last week. We were instructed to interview each other and produce around a 60 second sound bite about the researcher in question and their project. The goals were to practice interviewing and learning how to present scientific research to a non-scientific audience. I personally think we did a fantastic job accomplishing those objectives!
I've embedded a couple of those clips below, and I'll be slowly adding more over the next few days. For this post, I'm introducing Rich Walker and Bryan Maitland. Both Rich and Bryan are studying various aspects of aquatic ecosystems, which include human impacts and community structure. Have a listen, and feel free to comment on their research or if you have any questions!
