Meet Dr. Maria Pawlowska! An expert in research management with a focus on open science and international collaboration. In this episode we chat why you should care about open science. From advocating for diamond open access – free to pay, free to publish – to incorporating other ways of knowing, open science practices allow researchers to promote high quality research that is accessible for all. Look forward to interesting conversations about inclusivity in STEM, promoting people at random, and the impact of humans masquerading as polar bears on reindeer.
