The influence of scientists’ individual and contextual factors on science communication processes

In her research, Carolin Enzingmüller focuses on prerequisites for effectively communicating science topics and methods. In addition to communication with the public, she will also take into consideration interdisciplinary communication with colleagues from other disciplines. Furthermore her work investigates how the two areas can benefit from one another.

The research on scientists’ individual and contextual factors will draw on theories and results in the areas of science education and interdisciplinary expert-lay-communication. Results will be used for the long-term design of training measures for (junior) scientists in the area of science outreach.
