Kassandra is a language and interculturality student at Edinburgh Napier University, planning to pursue her further studies in the field of science communication. She is particularly excited to get some hands-on experience and to support the unique and passionate mission of Sense About Science. During the pandemic is has become especially clear that evidence based discussions between the public, researchers and policy makers are of great importance. Furthermore, after getting an insight into the diplomatic side of things at the Austrian Embassy in Paris, Kassandra is very interested to see how the work of Sense About Science ties into policy making. Kassandra is enthusiastic to learn more about evidence based decision making, transparency as well as making research understandable and accessible to the public.
