Dr Jen Martin
Committee Chair, Youth Ambassador Program - VIC
Dr Jen Martin spent many years working as a field ecologist until she decided the most useful thing she could contribute as a scientist was to teach other scientists how to be effective and engaging communicators.
Jen founded and leads the University of Melbourne's acclaimed Science Communication Teaching Program. Jen also practices what she preaches: she’s been talking about science each week on 3RRR radio for 15 years, writes for a variety of publications, MC’s events and was named the Unsung Hero of Australian Science Communication for 2019.
