NSERC CREATE Environmental Innovation Eye Opener Keynote Speaker: Dan Riskin
Dan Riskin will highlight the importance of scientific communication, especially in non-traditional scientific careers, and provide some tips and tricks of the trade when interacting with media about research.
Dan Riskin is an evolutionary biologist, science broadcaster, author, and holds a PhD in the biomechanics of bats. His passionate love of science influences every aspect of his life, and informs every subject he speaks on.
Best known as the host of Animal Planet’s hugely successful show about parasites, Monsters Inside Me, and of Discovery’s flagship science program, Daily Planet, Riskin makes science accessible, relevant, and deeply motivating to the layperson, showing audiences how they can develop their curiosity for the sciences (or anything else) on their own terms.
