Calling all science fans (nerds, closet nerds, hipsters, etc.) living in the Seattle area...want to hear about some great cutting-edge science in an understandable way? The University of Washington Engage Science speakers series features UW researchers talking about their work in an informal evening setting. This year's series kicks off on Wednesday, Feb. 2nd at 7 PM with an astronomy presentation that's sure to please.
Charlotte's talk will be in Johnson Hall, Room 075, UW Seattle Campus. Come learn how stars are born!

- I'm an assistant professor of neuroscience at Washington State University in Vancouver, where I use tiny zebrafish (the size of an eyelash!) as a model system to study human hearing loss and how we can prevent it. I'm also a long-time Toastmaster and I teach communication workshops. This blog represents the merging of my two passions - science and communication, which has really become one central passion - the science of communication. There's a revolution in science right now...the idea that we scientists should sometimes leave the lab and talk about what we do, and why we do it, to real people. This blog looks at why we should do this, and how to actually talk about science with non-scientists (and with each other!). Portions of this blog are also featured on Qualia, the AAAS MemberCenter blog site.
