- Neuroscientist, Science Communicator, and Digital Media Producer Dr Samantha Yammine (Science Sam) loves talking about anything science, anywhere and everywhere. Samantha has created space for continued, multi-way dialogue about science that transcends geographical borders and the traditional gate-keeping of academia. Samantha has hosted a livestream with an astronaut aboard the International Space Station, presented her research on the streets at Toronto’s busiest intersection, talked ringside with Muay Thai fighters about performance anxiety, and showed off model and real brains at 1am in a Yurt during an all-night art festival. She leads interactive workshops on science communication, personal branding, and social media to teach scientists and STEM professionals the skills they need to share their science creatively.
