About Sofia Jain-Schlaepfer
I'm Sofia Jain-Schlaepfer. I am both a trained artist and a trained biologist giving me the unique ability to turn science into art: the ultimate form of science communication. My mission is to use science communication to fill the missing link between research and creating a better world. We know so much about our world but usually the researched facts don't make it beyond scientific publication to the public and policy makers, and this step is essential to create positive informed change.
My background in art includes design, painting and graphics. My background in science includes biology, chemistry, physics and math. I have a BSc in Environmental Science (Carleton University) and = my MSc in Marine Biology (James Cook University). I've led research on many topics in ecology and environment.
