Tania Jenkins
Citizen science researcher


Tania is a scientist-turned science communicator. I  have been active in promoting the public engagement with science for the last seven years and have (co)-created and managed diverse projects. These include exhibitions, educational material, outreach events, storytelling, theatre, game design, film, transdisciplinary hackathons and museum evaluation projects. As a former scientist myself, with a PhD and two postdocs in evolutionary ecology, I understand science and its environment and want to help scientists become better communicators.I am currently working  at the University of Geneva on “CoFish: a co-created citizen science project for evolution understanding, conservation and scientific literacy”. In this project we aim to co-create a research project with fishers.  I like “difficult” topics: evolution, genetics, climate change and humans’ relationship with technology and believe that a transdisciplinary perspective is needed for social innovation.
