LSC faculty members Professors Dominique Brossard and Dietram Scheufele, John E. Ross Chair in Science Communication, have been named Kavli Frontiers of Science fellows by the National Academy of Sciences and the Kavli Foundation.
Brossard and Scheufele are joined as fellows by LSC alumnus Andrew R. Binder (Ph.D., ’10), Assistant Professor of Communication at North Carolina State University.
The Kavli Frontiers of Science program brings together leading young scientists to participate in national and international symposia across disciplines. All three fellows with LSC connections participated in the twenty-fourth annual U.S. Symposium, which took place November 2-4, in Irvine California.
Each of the Kavli Frontiers of Science symposia bring together several dozen young scientists to highlight the state of research in their respective fields across disciplines. During this year’s U.S. Symposium, Scheufele chaired the panel on science communication, which included Brossard and Binder as presenters.
“The field of science communication research is increasingly at the center of discussions of innovative science,” said Brossard.
