Making Research Accessible with Social Media with Mackenzie Kerr

Mackenzie Kerr has been a candidate for the Green party in the federal and provincial election and recently finished her degree in forestry from UNBC. She is passionate about knowledge translation and making politics accessible. Her new position for the John Prince Research Forest at a social media intern is exactly that. She is translating research into accessible and easy to understand social media posts. JPRF is a co-managed research forest by Tl’azt’en First Nation and UNBC just outside of Fort St. James. It is the largest research forest on the continent. Through this position, she is hoping to inspire others to choose a career in natural resources and build a bridge between scientists and sharing their research online. She is excited to share with us why she thinks this is crucial and how it can connect to the larger issue of inaccessible science in our society today.
