Voices of Science!

Congrats to Morgan DiCarlo, who won Best Homegrown 3rd Place in the NC State Grad School Flick Competition!

Morgan DiCarlo was also selected as one of the American Geophysical Union’s “Voices for Science”!  AGU’s Voices for Science program trains scientists to serve as effective communicators of the value of Earth sciences to decision-makers, journalists, and the general public.

The program’s 2021-2022 class includes more than 40 scientists and engineers in all career stages from a diverse group of institutions. As a member of the program, Morgan will work directly with AGU staff and other program participants to connect with policymakers and advocate for the importance of science funding to political leaders in North Carolina.

Recently, Morgan met with the offices of Senator Burr, Senator Tillis, and Representative Ross. She shared insights from her research about community responses in North Carolina during hurricane recovery and water main breaks. She asked for congressional support for an increase in funding to the National Science Foundation, with which she is a graduate research fellow.

PhD student Nancy Ingabire Abayo (advised by Dr. Cabas) is also part of this Voices for Science cohort!
