Abstract: Communication is crucial as science becomes increasingly enmeshed in society. As scientists and communicators, we have often relied on intuition when communicating about our work to public audiences. In this talk, I first articulate the importance of empirical science communication research in service to the practice of engaging publics in conversations about complex topics. Then, I offer a sampling of my recent research projects and directions for the future of the science of science communication.
