Dr Jen Martin

Dr Jen Martin spent many years working as a field ecologist before deciding 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. She also practises what she preaches: for 15 years she’s been talking about science each week on 3RRR radio, she writes for a variety of publications and MCs events. In 2019, Jen was named the Unsung Hero of Australian Science Communication.
