I am always happy to meet new people, and to chat about science communication, my PhD research, and general concepts in neuroscience, genetics, or stem cell biology. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you want to learn more about any of these topics! :)
If you have an upcoming event that might benefit from an experienced science communicator, or if you're looking for a new way to expand the reach of your science public engagement, contact me to discuss the potential for a professional partnership.
Before sending collaboration requests, please note that - at minimum - all professional agreements would need to adhere to the following set of values:
All work and collaborations must be factual and evidence-based. No compromises on scientific accuracy will be made for the sake of promoting a brand or company.
All work and collaborations must comply with Samantha's committment to equity, diversity, and inclusion, meaning all content created will be made inclusive to the widest possible audience. For example:
Video content will be closed captioned for the deaf and hard of hearing
Graphical data will use colourblind-friendly textures, and palettes appropriate for colour vision deficiency
Pictures will have alt text or image descriptions, as appropriate for the platform
Work will be refused if it may contribute to the marginalization of people on the basis of (but not limited to) gender identity, body attributes, sexual orientation, Indigeneity status, socioeconomic status, level of education, race, religion, ethnicity, or disability.
