Hi! I am Marlit Hayslett (she/her) from Charlottesville, Virginia, USA. My work straddles science communication (SciComm) research and instruction. To my surprise, I often find that my peers are either SciComm researchers, or SciComm instructors, but not both. SciComm researchers, educators, and practitioners could all benefit from being more connected. I want to serve on the PCST Scientific Committee to facilitate active engagement between these communities.
