If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you probably noticed that I recently attended a science-y conference, since I spammed your feeds with hour-by-hour updates... sorry I'm not sorry! ;)
Being that I recently described what a technical conference can be like, now I want to share my notes from a workshop I went to while I was there, on what not to do in a scientific presentation, entitled 10 Design Mistakes that Ruin a PowerPoint Presentation presented by Ikumi Kayama. For more about her, and her business, click here! But first, how in the world did scientific presentations become so boring in the first place??
Welcome to Think Like a Postdoc. If you're a fan of science as much as I am, and/or are curious about getting a degree in a STEM field, or pursuing an interdisciplinary graduate degree (all from the perspective of a graduate student), then you're in the right place. Think Like a Postdoc also includes posts about my current lab and field research, including analytical chemistry, Arctic biogeochemistry, and energy & environmental policy. Comments and questions are always welcomed. And please tell me what you want to hear about next!
