Podcast: Spotlight on Science: Science communication with Theresa Cheng and Saul Propp

(David Rollins/Emerald)

In this second season debut of Spotlight on Science, Kris Chauvin and Max Drascher speak with Theresa Cheng and Saul Propp about science communication: why it is important and how scientists and researchers can get better at it. Science communication aims to explain research and findings in a way that informs and convinces the public of its validity. Theresa Cheng is currently a Ph.D. student at the UO studying developmental psychology and Saul Propp is a third year Physics Ph.D. student studying theoretical electron optics and quantum information theory.

Spotlight on Science is a series from the Emerald Podcast Network designed to spark conversations across disciplines with researchers at the University of Oregon, bringing in researchers to discuss their work in a way that is understandable to everyone.

This episode was produced by Alec Cowan. Our theme song is “Zombie Disco” by Six Umbrellas.
