Have you ever wondered how to better communicate your research? How to reduce jargon and make your story compelling? Alyssa Faro, a professional communicator who has years of experience translating science into engaging content for broad audiences, will give UNC postdocs examples of complex ideas told as engaging and easy-to-understand 5-minute stories, with analysis for why the talk was engaging. For postdocs interested in the upcoming Research Café Competition, this seminar should be of particular value. This event will take place in person at Marsico Hall (room 2004) on June 6th, from 12:30-1:30pm. Although we encourage in-person attendance for this event, there will be a virtual option for those who cannot make it (zoom link will be provided upon registration).

Alyssa Faro works at the UNC Research Communications Office and has years of experience composing articles for UNC’s Endeavors magazine and UNC Research, communicating UNC’s research to the wider world.
