"Communicating Your Research" - Preparing Science Professionals - Jorge Cham

Communication is key to that success, and PhD Comics’ Dr. Jorge Cham will share his expertise during two free science-communication career presentations on Thursday, September 6.

Nationally known for his unique approach to communicating science and for his insights into – and empathy for – the world of Academia, Dr. Cham earned his PhD in Robotics from Stanford University and was an instructor and Research Associate at Caltech.

An author, filmmaker, comic book creator and scientist (among other things), Dr. Cham returns to the University of Kentucky as part of his science career outreach.

In this talk, Jorge Cham relays his experiences creating successful science communication projects (videos that have been viewed by millions of people and a book release from Penguin Random House) and he communicates his passion for engaging with the public and exploring the unknown.  Meet the author at his book-signing immediately after the presentation -- top of the Social Staircase in the UK Student Center.
