Communicate research effectively to everyone. This workshop aims to provide researchers with necessary knowledge and skills to communicate their research to the wider public. Researchers learn first-hand from an experienced scientist/journalist how to publish their research in newspapers to reach non-academic audiences. The workshop also familiarizes students with social media channels such as Twitter, which can serve as a tool for communicating research ideas and findings.

About the Facilitators
Dr. Catalina Buciu, received her PhD in Creative Writing from Brunel University in London. While studying culture & politics in Burundi & Papua New Guinea, she became interested in the phenomenon of over-education and underemployment of youth (a topic she is focused on in her PhD research). Her interest in storytelling comes from early exposure to propaganda and changing narratives. She wants her stories to give a voice to the voiceless, the underdogs, the ones who don’t get to write history books because they are illiterate, defeated, betrayed, uninformed and marginalized.
Dr. Stefano Ceccon has been a Data Journalist at The Times and The Sunday Times for several years and a senior data scientist at News UK. He holds a PhD in Data Mining and Machine Learning from Brunel University London and has worked for 2 years as a post-doctoral researcher at City University London before joining News UK. As a journalist, he contributed to international stories such as the Doping Scandal and the Tax Avoidance investigations. As a researcher, he has published several papers and presented at major Machine Learning conferences.
