Meet the newest member of EGU’s communications team, Sara Mynott! Sara will manage GeoLog and the EGU blog network, run our social media channels, and develop EGU’s networking activities for young scientists.
Hello from the EGU office!
I have just taken on the task of being the EGU’s new social media bod or – if we’re being official – their new Communications Officer.
After completing a Masters in Environmental Geoscience at the University of Bristol, and a second in Marine Ecology, from Queen Mary University of London I’ve investigated areas such as: the use of microphones to monitor volcanoes; how crustacean fisheries can be managed effectively, and how warming climates may impact the fitness of cold-blooded animals. I can’t wait to spread the wonders of new research further afield.
I also have a keen interest in informal education, having volunteered at many a science festival, school and exhibition centre. Most recently this entailed demonstrating the principles of Newtonian physics using simple toys in a festive invention workshop! Before joining the EGU, I had the pleasure of working for PLoS, which gave me a good grounding in the essentials of open access publishing and the merits of alternative ways to share and discuss research online.
Working with the EGU’s Media and Communications Manager, Bárbara Ferreira, I’ll be sharing all things Geoscience, while contributing to the EGU blog and developing communications with young scientists. With all the tools we have for sharing science, I couldn’t be more excited about the task at hand!
Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the EGU or any of its publications – it would be great to hear from you!
