50:50 How an analytical brain approaches creativity
Melissa Hoover (Content Designer with IBM)
Melissa is a content designer with IBM, and a volunteer graphic designer with Pint of Science Ireland. But, before all this, she picked up 2 masters, the first in science communication and the second in emerging media. It taught her that science and art are more similar than they are different. Both usually rely on maths and repetition, but more often, good communication methods.
