Helping the world engage in science, with scientists.
Heidi A. Roop, Ph.D.
I aspire to be a scientist who changes how the world engages with science.
I am a research scientist with a passion for science & science communication. Through high-quality research, innovative teaching methods and informed public engagement practices, scientists have the ability to change the world. I strive to push the boundaries of what it means to be a skilled and impactful science communicator. I work to develop innovative ways to build bridges between the theory and practice of science communication. Creating spaces where both theory and practice work and inform one another, can help to more deeply connect science and society—and can help to catalyze dialogue and action around some of the most pressing problems facing society today.
