Storytelling

From doctors to dabblers, Shane Reader seeks to make digestible, story-driven research accessible for audiences of all levels of expertise

Stoking public interest in empirical research is integral to improving lives, enhancing the nuance of public discourse, and, perhaps most importantly, maintaining the funding necessary to create good science. To that end, Shane Reader produces readily-narrativized research that can be shared engagingly with lay audiences while withstanding theoretical scrutiny. Take a look at the award-winning presentation No Cake-Walk, which won first place at Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi's annual 3 Minute Thesis competition, or the presentation Can't Stomach the Thought, which was featured in the 7th International Conference on Food Studies

Students need to be taking home more to think about than homework

The scientific ecosystem is predicated on diversity, which is why nurturing the confidence, competence, and commitment of the next generation of researchers is so important. This includes both STEM students who may be pursuing research as a profession, and also lay scientists, individuals in other industries who will increasingly rely on advanced skills and creative faculties to be competitive in a changing economy. As a mentor, Shane Reader incorporates the techniques and guidance that his own academic advisors employed at Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi and Rice University: experiential learning, expanding responsibility, and critical feedback. Most importantly, mentorship opportunities are structured so that students finish with concrete deliverables to include in their resumes or CVs.
