We are told to be fearless at university, in business, and in life. However, given our evolutionary adaptations for survival, this is nearly impossible. Fear can be debilitating, but it can also be harnessed as a tool for success. Bringing together her work in human biology and communication, Mary shows us how we can learn to make peace with our fears and start using them to our advantage every day.
Whether it's creating original content for Wiley & Sons, writing for publications such as Science, or speaking to Sci-Curious crowds at live events like TEDx, Mary's goals are the same: Make science accessible for all. As a first generation college student who became a university biology lecturer, Mary is deeply committed to creating opportunities for all of us to find wonder in our natural world.
