This week we share two stories from scientists who had to take on a new role with their parents.
Part 1: As the scientist in the family, Steve Scott takes on a new role when his dad must undergo heart surgery.
Part 2: Tajana Schneiderman struggles to live up to the expectations and sacrifices of her brilliant scientist mother.
Steve is a science communicator and public engagement professional working at the Wellcome Genome Campus near Cambridge in the UK. He has a passion for helping scientists to find ways of sharing their stories, and a particular interest in engaging people with genetics and genomics. Steve also loves musical theatre, exploring nature, music that gets you dancing, and seeing the best in people!
Tajana Schneiderman is a PhD student in planetary sciences at MIT. Although she thought astronomy would be a career that let her look up, she finds she spends a lot of time reading papers, writing code, and analyzing data. She’s interested in detecting and characterizing exoplanetary systems to better understand the way systems form and evolve. In her free time, she knits, reads, and goes on backpacking adventures.
