About this science series

Each year, up to 10 outstanding researchers from fields of green chemistry/engineering and the environmental health sciences are selected to serve as Science Fellows. They bring a wide range of experiences and intimate understanding of diverse disciplines, which we capture here in a series of posts, interviews and videos.

The fellowship

The Science Communication Fellowship is a nine-month program for early career PhD scientists who want to maximize the impact of their work to benefit public health and the environment, and share their passion for science. Fellows are chosen from the fields of green chemistry/engineering and the environmental health sciences, and work in academia and government.

The program focus is on the skills necessary for confident and effective engagement with the range of non-scientists Fellows will encounter in their careers as they share rapidly evolving environmental health and green chemistry research.
