Scholar Minds event with Tegan Armarego-Marriott (Nature Climate Change)

Growing up in Science - Berlin. Please register.

We are happy to invite you to this month talk on Growing up in Science - Berlin. In every talk, we feature a scholar's story focusing on doubts, struggles, detours, and failures throughout all career stages. The primary goal is not to offer classical career advice but to examine in some depth and in the context of a broader narrative the hidden human factors of working in academia. To know more about the rationale behind Growing up in Science talks, please have a look at this article: The stories behind a CV | Science (sciencemag.org)

Our speaker for this month is Tegan Armarego-Marriott, an associate editor in Nature Climate Change. Tegan completed her PhD and postdoctoral work at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology, focusing on the biogenesis and activity of plant chloroplasts, particularly plastid development and plastid gene expression and regulation in plants. She is also passionate about science communication and co-hosts the blog/podcast Plants and Pipettes, where you can learn amazing facts about plants and other research-related topics! We are looking forward to hearing about her career path through Australia, Germany and UK, and from the lab to editorial work and science communication.

The event will take place online via Zoom on Thursday, 24 June 2021, from 5:00 to 6:30 pm.
