How does your research contribute to Seeing Science Differently?
My research contributes to Seeing Science Differently by allowing science communicators and scientists to adopt a different role in communication around risk of an infectious disease outbreak. Access to another perspective can inform better communication practices and a richer, more participatory discourse in the public and veterinary health arena.
