Stories in Science: Vessels of Power and Possibility

Thursday, May 30, 2019

Ari Daniel, Senior Digital Producer, NOVA; Senior Producer, Story Collider; Independent Science Reporter

In a world increasingly cluttered by news feeds, social media, phone apps, and podcasts, it can be difficult to sift through all the noise. Ari Daniel, a scientist turned journalist, describes the power contained within stories and how he uses techniques like narrative and storytelling to communicate a wide array of science topics to a broad audience. He will explain how different mediums offer different opportunities, and how he has used radio, video, and live storytelling to make scientists more human and science come alive.

About Ari Daniel

Ari has always been drawn to science and the natural world. As a kid, he packed his green Wildlife Treasury box full of species cards. As a graduate student, Ari trained gray seal pups (Halichoerus grypus) for his master’s degree at the University of St. Andrews, and helped tag wild Norwegian killer whales (Orcinus orca) for his Ph.D. at MIT and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
