As a researcher and professor of science communication, the issues of communicating science are a factor that impacts all areas of science, but critically in science related to earth, ocean and atmospheric sciences. Dr. Nucci’s courses on science communication address these issues through the lens of climate change. As a researcher she has led a group of researchers that examined Rutgers students perceptions and behaviors related to climate change. Mary hopes to engage the disciplines represented in EOAS to collaborate in research and teaching on communicating science.
