A Scientist's Guide to Policy in DC

Dr. Kristin Lewis, Project Director, American Association for the Advancement of Science.

To scientists outside of Washington, D.C., federal policy-making and funding allocations can often seem mysterious. Kristin Lewis stepped into the science policy world after earning a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Michigan. Through her work at NASA and AAAS and having helped coordinate the Fourth National Climate Assessment, she will share stories of her time in DC and talk about how science and scientists can engage within the policy world. Learn about how to communicate to policy makers, how scientists can share their expertise within the government, and get insight into federal budgets and research spending.
