Are you an applied or research scientist working in the Portland, Oregon, area? If so, we’d like to do a quick Q&A with you to spotlight you, your work, and the diversity of science and scientists that we have in the metro area.
We have just five standard questions for you to answer, although we might follow-up with a couple more for clarification or elaboration. Answer all five or skip any you’re not comfortable with. We want to keep this fun but informative.
Here are the five questions:
1. What is your field of science, and how did you find your way into that field and into science in general?
2. What is the focus of your research or applied science? What research projects, R&D or applications are you working on currently?
3. In your recent research or applied science endeavors, what have you learned so far through that’s excited you? What have you found most challenging in the work?
4. Have you had public exposure for your work or field of science? What has been the public or media reception or perceptions of your work or scientific field? How has that thrilled or frustrated you? Any misconceptions you found that you’d like to clear up?
5. How do you like to connect to the science community around Portland? (“Community” can include peers in your field, other scientists and science fans in the general public.)
See, those aren’t so bad, are they?
