Who are you as a researcher?
Write your own biographical statement “about the researcher’ in regard to climate change and interests. How would you write your research biography?
This Google Doc assignment asks you to promote the ideas and interests you care about, asking you to get your reader to recognize that your experiences and interests line up with your research questions. This writing is about crafting a persona that helps people see the person behind the research. You might find that this is difficult. Ask for help–try out the strategies in the IARC posters. Often, this kind of research writing appears in websites or even in cover letters. I will be reading this for how well you represent yourself as approachable and committed–craft yourself so that after reading I want to collaborate or ask a question.
