Last year Ginger Gorman of local Canberra ABC radio 666 interviewed me about science in Doctor Who and my Doctor Who research on her program ‘Emporium’.
An edited version of that interview was today rebroadcast on Radio National on The Science Show, and can be heard at the program’s website.
Today a journal paper I co-authored with former undergraduate student Naomi Shadbolt about a SCOM3003 Special Topics in Science Communication research project she conducted in 2011 was accepted for publication.
The paper will be published in the Health Promotion Journal of Australia. It reports on a survey into the needs and preferences of young Australian women for communicating about endometriosis.
Naomi, who is currently enrolled in a Master of Science Communication degree at the ANU, is lead author of the paper, followed by her Canberra Endometriosis Centre supervisor Melissa Parker, with me bringing up the rear.
This is the second student-authored journal paper to have emerged from a student-run research project conducted through one of my undergraduate courses.
Congratulations to Naomi – I am very proud!
