Dr Rod Lamberts is Deputy Director of the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science (CPAS) at the Australian National University and a former National President of the Australian Science Communicators. He has more than 20 years’ experience as a science communication practitioner and researcher, and designed and delivered some of the first university science communication courses in Australia. He is also a former Chair of the ANU Science and Medicine Delegated Research Ethics Committee and a member of the ANU Human Research Ethics Committee. Rod has provided science communication advice to a wide variety of private and public science-related agencies in Australia and overseas (including the CSIRO, UNESCO & DIIS). He was invited to become a FSANZ fellow in 2019, and is a regular public commentator on science, science communication, and science and public policy. Rod is a strong proponent of getting academia well beyond the hallowed halls of academe. When not lurking at the ANU, he can be heard around the ABC radio network doing things like Research Filter and Nightlife, read in places like The Conversation, and caught every week on The Wholesome Show podcast. His professional and research interests include: science communication and public intellectualism/activism; science and ethics; perceptions of expertise in science; risk perception and communication; and science and public policy. Will J. Grant is a senior lecturer at the Australian National Center for the Public Awareness of Science, Australian National University.
