#ActualLivingScientist began in 2017 by wildlife ecologist David Steen in order to connect science to the broader community. Since then, many scientist have joined the effort on social media to engage the public with research. I decided to create a blog in 2018 to further this mission. My goal for this blog is to show that scientists like myself are regular, curious people that have a need to understand the world.
Science and everyday life cannot and should not be separated.
Well I've Finally decided to start a blog
Blog // 05.29.18
This blog has been a long time coming. For a while, I did not think what I had to say would interest anyone or be anything special. But I have realized over the past several months that even if only my mom reads this, writing about my experiences in science is something I need to do for me. My work in graduate school is extremely analytical and data driven. I miss the creative outlet that writing provides, thus #ActualLivingScientist was born.
