A scientist's perspective on Capitol Hill, communicating with policy makers, and science policy
Dr Mike Mann (Penn State)
The event is a town-hall style Q&A in which Dr. Mann will talk about his experiences, as a scientist, dealing with policy makers on Capitol Hill. In particular, he will discuss what he thinks his biggest hurdles were as a scientist communicating to policy makers, which types of messages worked best (and which weren't effective), and what he thinks our generation of scientists can do to contribute to reasonable science policy.
