Social science…

My goal is to take you along on my own explorations of both science and the communication of science.

From radio on KUOW  talking about emerging viruses and sequester cuts to movies, I try to share my moments. There was a bizarre confluence of genetics news and Hollywood, when Seattle’s Mary-Claire King, genetics pioneer in breast cancer, met cancer survivor, Anne Parker for the screening of Decoding Annie Parker.  The two women met (outside of fiction)  for the first time.

Earlier this year, I appeared at Town Hall in Seattle as part of the Ignite Seattle program.  Here is a video about using a cartoonist’s language to explain complex ideas.
