May 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Amplify Your Voice Online: Strategies for Powerful Science Communication Across Platforms (LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook and more)

Speaker: David Spadaro

David Spadaro is Science Communicator and Project Manager for the Microbiomes research group with CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency. The microbiome group researches microbial communities and how they can be modified to benefit our food, health and environment. There he connects with researchers to communicate their microbiome projects internally and externally through a range of strategies such as website development, blogs, social media posts and an animated video, to a diverse range of audiences.

He is also currently Project Co-ordinator of the CSIRO Agriculture and Food Data School which is an intensive internship which aims to develop digital skills of researchers delivered through cohort-based and mentored training, using the Software Carpentries.

Previously David worked as a Research Scientist in the Ecotoxicology Team in CSIRO, researching the effects of industrial contaminants on the aquatic ecosystem. His research has focused on developing toxicity test and risk assessment methods to understanding of the relationship between chemical speciation, bioavailability and toxicity in a number of environmental scenarios within sediments, groundwaters and marine and freshwater ecosystems.
