The Science of Science Communication

Presenter: Dietram Scheufele
Newell-Simon Hall 1507

PCR is proud to join the Science & Engineering Ambassadors program in hosting Dr. Dietram Scheufele, a renowned expert in the science of science communication! This session will provide an overview of the research and evidence behind effective science communication.

Dr. Scheufele is the John E. Ross Professor in Science Communication and Vilas Distinguished Acheievement Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research deals with the public and political interfaces of emerging science, and he is listed by Google Scholar as the most highly cited researcher in science communication. He co-chairs the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine’s Roundtable on Public Interfaces of the Life Sciences, and co-organized the Academies’ Sackler Colloquia series on the Science of Science Communication.
