Turning data into stories
How to communicate about YOUR work
Paul is a reformed scientist now making a career in digital science communication. As a co-founder of ScienceLink and a volunteer at SciBraai, he is excited to help steer these young organisations towards a bright future. He loves good communication, innovation and being his own boss, and dislikes ignorance and intolerance in all forms. When not helping make South African research relevant, you’ll find him on the mountain or in the garden.
Anina Mumm is a science communication and digital media specialist at ScienceLink, which means she helps scientists connect with the world, particularly through the use of multi-media story-telling and other innovative digital tools. Anina is also the Chairperson of SciBraai, a proudly South African NPO dedicated to science journalism, communication and outreach, and she is an active member of the South African Science Journalists’ Association.
Sibusiso dabbled in physics and chemistry as an undergraduate, and his career as a science communicator blossomed with his award-winning columns on science for local newspapers in KwaZulu-Natal. When he’s not popularising science and practically forcing everyone around him to think critically, he teaches high school maths & science in his home town. He’s our resident social media and data journalism guru, and he’s the author of South Africa’s first isiZulu science news round-up published by SciBraai.
