Description

Who is Dr. Raven the Science maven? How is she making science "cool"? Phutures and the Graduate Representative Organization are excited to sit with Dr. Raven Baxter to explore some of our burning questions and have some fun doing it! Register here

Dr. Baxter challenges the status quo to prove that science communicators aren't all one and the same. Whether producing viral hip-hop videos such as her "Antibodyody Antibody Song" or her "Wipe it Down" to teach science lessons to the masses or hosting a STEM-themed talk show she created called STEMbassy, she joyfully disrupts traditional cultural perceptions about scientists. In addition, Dr. Baxter is a sought-after public speaker who maintains a strong voice in science academia as the Director of Diversity Initiatives in the UC Irvine School of Biological Sciences.

Dr. Baxter will join the Hopkins graduate student and postdoc community to discuss her motivations behind science education and her public outreach alongside topics that include generating original ideas, managing work and life, strategies to communicate complex topics to varied audiences, and managing critical feedback.
