We are a small group working behind the scenes at SciSnack to keep things running smoothly. We always need more help, so if you would like to work with us then please get in touch. At the moment, we are looking for people to work with social media, video editing, web-site management amongst other things.
Mathew Stiller-Reeve: Founder and Director
Mathew started SciSnack (originally ClimateSnack) in 2012. He wanted to improve his own writing skills, but found it uninspiring to go through this process alone. He thought that all young and early career scientists could benefit from working together in groups to improve their writing and also their communication skills. When he is not trying to improve his writing, Mathew is a post-doc at Uni Research Climate and the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research in Bergen, Norway. He works on an interdisciplinary climate project called TRACKS (projecttracks.net). This project works with local communities in north east Bangladesh and aims to create useful and high quality climate information that can help these people adapt to present weather and future climate.
Céline Heuzé: Co-Director
Céline is one of the founding mothers of the University of East Anglia (UK) writing group that she lead during her PhD. She has now moved to the University of Gothenburg (Sweden) for a post-doc, and is there in charge of her research group’s blog: polarfever.com. She is a sea-going polar physical oceanographer who also enjoys modelling sea level rise projections and playing with water tanks and food dye.
Several others have previously worked hard to make SciSnack and ClimateSnack a success since we started in 2012. All of the following deserve alot of credit for their time and effort:
Ashley Braunthal: Intern (Bergen)
The Bergen arm of SciSnack was lucky to have Ashley as an intern for 2015-2016. At the time, Ashley was a Fullbright Scholar from USA and worked on the international Ice2Ice project: an international research project looking in to the cause and future implications of past abrupt climate changes in Greenland. During the exchange year, Ashley led the Bergen writing group, and also planned science communication events for the wider scientific community. Check out her articles on SciSnack and follow her Fullbright journey on her blog.
William Ball: Co-Director
Matthias Schmid: Web Development
Rachel White: Event Organizer
