This talk is part of the Beyond the Ivory Tower Series on broadening the impact of scientific research, presented by AFSUW, Washington Sea Grant, and COSEE OLC.

Our first speaker in this series is Christie Wilcox, an award-winning science writer, Scientific American blogger, and a PhD student in cell and molecular biology at the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology. Her recent series of posts on social media for scientists covers the personal and professional benefits that scientists gain by using social media, including improving your communication skills, networking, and managing your web presence. Christie makes the point that social media helps build dialogue between scientists and the general public, policy makers, funders, and even other scientists.
