‘ONLINE’ Beaty@Home Live: Women in STEM

Coreen's hands grasp a piece of eelgrass, looking for attached marine invertebrates.Learn about Women in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) at UBC through this Beaty@Home.

This conversation welcomes two biodiversity researchers to talk about their experiences, and there will be time to ask questions. We are excited to be joined by researchers in different specialties and career phases. Joining us will be:

  • Dr. Diane Srivastava, Professor in the UBC Department of Zoology. In the Srivastava lab, they work on answering questions about community ecology through field experiments and model ecosystems. Learn more about her work on her lab webpage, and follow her lab on twitter @srivastavalab! Watch her previous Way Cool talk about bromeliad insects on YouTube. 
  • Jen Baron, PhD student in the UBC Faculty of Forestry, where she investigates wildfires and landscape ecology.  Learn more about her work on her lab webpage, watch her previous Beaty@Home talk, and follow her on twitter @jen_baron_!

It’s a great time to learn more about the experiences of women in science, and to consider how this can relate to your own path in science. Join us to celebrate the UN International Women and Girls in Science Day, observed on February 11, 2021. To continue learning about Women in Science at UBC, we recommend investigating Researchers Revealed, and UBC’s Women in Science 2020 Feature.
