Kaelin DeLong is a Junior Lecturer & Researcher at the Vrije Universiteit (VU) Amsterdam working on master’s courses about science communication, science journalism, and inter/transdisciplinarity. She is a Researcher on the COALESCE project, which is building the future European Competence Centre for Science Communication, and a Science Communication Trainer for an Aurora project that provides dialogue trainings at various European universities. Kaelin also recently received a grant for an education innovation project about how generative AI is impacting the field of science communication.

 

With a background in biology and anthropology, Kaelin is broadly interested in the intersections between science, culture, language, identity, and social justice. She has researched everything from human-baboon interactions in South Africa to in/exclusion issues in Dutch science museums, and is currently fascinated by the intersection between climate change and mental health and the role of emotions in science communication. She enjoys incorporating storytelling, art, and humor into “traditional” scientific work, and is passionate about creating more diverse, robust, and just scientific communities.
