Research and/or communication

Science is a more than full time job. Science communication might be too. I want to shift the balance  in the direction of the latter, but that poses the problem that time spent on science communication is time not spent on generating science. So in a way, in order to be good at one you have to be shit at the other. I haven't really figured out the balance yet. And in these economic times it's not advisable to be shit at things. Difficult! But stay tuned; I'll keep trying. Next up should be a blog post on Greenlandic ice on the science blog! (And here it is!)
