Are you a scientist or do you communicate about science using social media either in a personal capacity or on behalf of a research institute or company? Can you answer a few questions for us to create some social media case studies for scientists?
Here's some more details of what we're trying to do. Feel free to message me to volunteer or to clarify anything.

I have worked at Rockefeller University's Office of Communications and Public Affairs since 1994, and have served as head of that office since 2004. At Rockefeller, I have covered research from areas across the discipline of the life sciences, including biochemistry, molecular biology, neurobiology, structural biology and immunology, as well as chemistry and physics. I have coordinated press coverage for three Nobel Prize winners, as well as major university announcements, including the elections of two presidents, the university’s centennial and a record-breaking gift. My team has received several awards from the CASE Circle of Excellence Awards Program, including a gold medal for research, medicine and science news writing, and an overall grand gold award for excellence in news writing in 2003.
I earned a bachelor’s degree in ceramic science and engineering from Penn State University, where I also did graduate research on electronic and superconducting ceramics. Prior to joining Rockefeller, I worked as a bartender at the All-American Rathskeller in State College, PA, and as a proofreader/copyeditor for Plenum Publishing in New York. I am a member of the National Association of Science Writers and co-president of Science Writers in New York.
