About The Event

In this talk, I discuss: the variety of roles in which scientists have opportunities to speak science to power; the origins of my serendipitous trajectory of chances to do so; some of my early and mid-career adventures speaking science to power; how I ended up as Science Advisor to President Obama; process and substance around science and technology advice in the Obama White House; and a few of the more transferable lessons I took away from these experiences.
