ScienceOnline'09 Conference in North Carolina

tags: , , , , , ,
You are all cordially invited to the third annual ScienceOnline’09 conference which is scheduled for 16-18 January 2009 at the Sigma Xi Center in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. I am determined that I will be present this year, and that I will speak about something useful while I am there! So far, things look promising because my topic suggestions have been met with positive feedback. (Since I am so optimistic, I have already registered for the conference, in fact). So I encourage you to take some time away from your Christmas bills and taxesby spending some time with a smart group of people who will discuss communicating and popularizing science using blogs.


About GrrlScientist

grrlscientist is the pseudonym of an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist who writes about evolution, ethology, and ecology, especially in birds. After earning a degree in microbiology (thesis focus: virology) and working at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, she earned her PhD in zoology from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she studied the molecular correlates of testosterone and behaviour in white-crowned sparrows. She then worked a Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where she studied the speciation and distribution of lories and other parrots throughout the South Pacific Islands. A discarded scientist, she returned to her roots: writing. Formerly hosted by The Guardian (UK), she now writes about science for Forbes and for the non-profit think tank, the Evolution Institute and she writes podcasts for BirdNote Radio. An avid lifelong birder and aviculturist, she lives with a flock of songbirds and parrots somewhere in Germany.
