Join us for a panel seminar where Dr. Carlie Wiener, Schmidt Ocean Institute’s Director of Communications, will be joined by Bigad Shaban, Investigative Reporter for NBC, Elizabeth Weise, National Correspondent for USA Today, and Matthew Hiltzik, President and CEO of Hitzik Strategies will share their experience and strategy on science storytelling for impact .
Free and open to graduate students in any environmental discipline, the Eric and Wendy Schmidt Center for Data Science & Environment (DSE) and partners are thrilled to host Dr. Carlie Wiener, Director of Communications, Schmidt Ocean Institute and a panel of science communication experts for two free science storytelling for impact workshops on October 17 or 18th.
DSE began as a broad vision to utilize data for making a positive impact on environmental challenges. Our funders and founding team were united by an optimism for our planet's health and the pressing need to use everything at our disposal to counter our climate uncertain future. They saw a clear path to leverage current research and expertise and use data to uncover insights for action. Underlying our efforts are open practices - open data, open science, and open source to create work that can be transparent, scalable, easily accessible, and designed with community support.
The Eric and Wendy Schmidt Center for Data Science & Environment at Berkeley (DSE) seeks a Research Software Engineer / Data Scientist with a passion for using creative coding methods to help develop and implement visualizations and other interactive data-enabled solutions who would be excited to see their work have an impact on the challenges facing our environment.
We are thrilled to welcome the team that will be driving our programs, data, and engineering at the Eric and Wendy Schmidt Center for Data Science and Environment (DSE)!
Each individual brings great talent, expertise and a passion for our mission. We are excited to have them onboard to design and implement open tools and data critical to improving the wellbeing of our planet and our communities.
As we move forward, we will work openly and share new findings, prototypes, and more, so stay tuned!
We are excited to share that the Eric and Wendy Schmidt Center for Data Science and Environment at Berkeley (DSE) has named Kevin Koy as Executive Director where he is now working to enable the Center’s mission to develop impactful computational solutions to the challenges facing our environment.
A new research center at the University of California, Berkeley, funded by alumni Eric and Wendy Schmidt, will tackle major environmental challenges including climate change and biodiversity loss by combining data science and environmental science.
