The EUSEA Team is growing –
Let’s give a warm welcome to our new EUSEA Project Officers!

The selection process was not easy – so many highly qualified and motivated candidates applied that it took the EUSEA selection team quite some time to find the best candidates.  Now we are happy to announce that Amalia Verzola and Chris Styles will be supporting our EU projects as Dissemination Officers!

Amalia will work on the new EU project StepChange, which will be launched in March. Chris will support the communication and dissemination of OurSpaceOurFuture and RESBIOS. Both will start on March 1st 2021. Welcome to the EUSEA team!

Amalia Verzola

ME

Former researcher in Aesthetics & Politics, I am extroverted, creative, eclectic and passionate about political communication, Europe, science outreach, migration and innovation. My area of expertise is related to EU policies in the field of R&I (science and society, RRI, participatory research, public engagement in science, science shops, social innovation, smart specialisations). I have lived in 9 EU cities and I now work as a communications and EU affairs consultant all over Europe (and beyond). I have a blog where I write about my life as an Italian expat in France. In my spare time, apart from binge-watching, I regularly practise psychogeographical dérives.

ME & EUSEA

I am very excited about starting this new adventure with EUSEA’s team and all of you. I am looking forward to meeting people coming from the more diverse backgrounds and sharing their enthusiasm for public engagement in science. I will do my best to make your voices resonate and I am honoured to represent your community.

Chris Styles

ME

Ex-dung beetle wrangler, grass-counter, science teacher and pond-dipper. Currently; a science communicator, storyteller, existential worrier, and shouty introvert. After 10 years of working at many different science adjacent jobs, I have found myself in a role that I love, Science Communication. Although I have come a bit of a long way around, I feel that each stepping stone has provided me with a unique insight into how science is addressed within the different fields. This experience has allowed me to develop the skills needed to share science and research stories with a diverse audience.

ME & EUSEA

I am very excited to start work with a team that so clearly embraces a multidisciplinary approach to communicating science. I cannot wait to learn from all of you and to share any insight I might have gained through my time working in research, education and communications. With this, I hope we can work together to create some unique experiences and to share our love of science with as many people as possible.
