Meet the Team

JingXin

Hi, I’m JingXin! I earned my Ph.D. in chemistry in 2018 and did a brief postdoc before entering into chemical industry. I realized how much I loved academic science and am currently in a second postdoc. As such, I bring experience from different scientific fields.

I have always loved writing, words, and the storytelling process. A story is only as engaging as it can be effectively communicated (e.g., a well-structured talk). I’m excited to be a part of the BSC team where I get to help shape narratives to share exciting science and discoveries. Some of my favorite editing projects involve restructuring texts to turn a good story into a GREAT story and elevating the aesthetics of figures (because a picture speaks 1,000 words).

When I’m not working on science, I love photography, running in the rain, cooking (especially spaghetti!), and making noise on my acoustic guitar.

 

Hanna

Hi, I’m Hanna. I have a Bachelor’s degree in hospitality management and have a background in the hotel and event industry.

I enjoy being in contact with clients, planning, coordinating and organizing. So I do my best to find with you the optimal solution that corresponds to your needs. When I’m not working, I like to travel and discover new cultures, test new recipes and train for my next sporting challenge: the marathon.

I look forward to exchanging with you.

 

Kaycie

Hi! I’m Kaycie! I earned my Ph.D. in chemistry at Caltech in 2014, and did my postdoc in chemical biology at EPFL. After so many years in academia, I realized how little scientists were taught about how to write effective manuscripts – and how much we struggled because of it. I founded ButlerSciComm to fix this issue and to help scientists get their manuscripts published.

As a scientist, I wanted to spend my time doing great science and not stressing about writing and being heard. Unfortunately, that was something I struggled enormously with during my time in lab. To fix this, and to combine my passion for science communication with human psychology, I studied the people who could communicate to learn what they did and how they did it.

When I’m not working on a paper, teaching a workshop, or developing a new course, you can find me under water (scuba), at a yoga or dance studio, or with my nose in a book. The ocean is definitely my happy place, so good thing I can work remotely!
