Pablo Jensen, a physicist from the ENS Lyon, will give us a conference at the CRI on thursday 25th september, 10 AM in the seminar room (2017 - 2nd floor) about :
Science communication, interdisciplinarity and research performance
Pablo is interested in the analysis and modeling of social systems and is also involved in science communication (he already wrote two books) and in teaching (he is launching an interdisciplinary master 2 this year at the frontier between physics, maths & computer sciences).
His last paper published this summer shows that scientists involved in dissemination activities like science mediation or teaching perform better academically, some very good news for most of us!
This work is a beautiful example of the joint power of a simple yet highly socially relevant question and of the availability of extensive data on the web.
Pablo will present this work and the new interdisciplinary master and we will then discuss on these topics.
