"By delving deeper into the applications of science communication, I have improved my scientific methods, and it has encouraged me to further incorporate creativity into my work, expand my network of audiences, and to conduct research outside traditional scientific means."
Greetings from "Laradise"!
My name is Chelsea Duball and I am the girl on the scene this week. In this week’s segment of the blog, I look forward to addressing topics and discussions that range widely across the SciComm spectrum. As I take the lead this week, I have two major goals: to focus on the different perceptions and approaches to science communication and to reveal the mighty power of interdisciplinary research.

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!
