Please join us on Friday March 14, 2014, (pi day) for the second installment of lectures on science in the public sphere. Our speaker is Dr. Amber Mace, deputy director of the California Council on Science and Technology and policy fellow with the UC Davis Policy Institute for Energy, Environment and the Economy. Dr. Mace’s talk will frame some of the factors that lead to a disconnect between scientists and decision-makers and provide a high-level overview of science-based decision-making in California with a focus on climate change and sea level rise. It will also highlight some opportunities for students who are considering careers beyond academia and would like to develop relevant skills and experience to help continue to break down the barriers between science and policy.
