Megan Biango-Daniels isn't satisfied just publishing her research in top scientific journals. She's been doing a bit of communication lately about her recent article that appeared in Food Microbiology, Sea Salts as a Potential Source of Food Spoilage Fungi. She wrote/pitched this press release to the Cornell Chronicle and spoke about the topic also at Ithaca's Apple Fest on October 1 for the Apple Harvest Festival edition of Science Cabaret.
As is becoming a trend for BESTies, one opportunity led to another: an interview by Locally Sourced Science, a bi-weekly local radio program that may be of interest to BESTies looking to make a podcast.
All her outreach has gotten the attention of local science teachers, as well.
Next, Megan is looking forward to talking with Dryden High schoolers via their Conversation with a Scientist program funded by the Dryden Youth Opportunity Fund on November 15th. The program is designed to inspire and expose high school students to STEM careers, to redefine what a scientist looks like, and to learn why scientists are passionate about their work.
