Who I am: Charlotte Koldbye | YouTube

Where I live: Denmark

What I do: “I am a science journalist by serendipity. I am an extremely curious person, and when I had the chance to do a radio show about neuroscience it just felt right. I could just ask researchers questions and they would answer me. I could channel my curiosity and get paid for it”

Why science journalism:  Most researchers have a common goal – to gain insight. To ask questions and dig for answers. Science never gets boring, everything, literally everything is interesting if you dig deep enough.

Suggestions for newcomers:

  • Just do it. Don’t hold back. You don’t have to be a physicist to write about physics. Write, do podcast or videos!
  • You will learn as you go along. Be a loyal ambassador for your audience.
  • Put science into perspective so it makes sense for them.

As part of the WFSJ’s 67 member associations, there are about 10,000 of you out there who belong to this organization. In this respect the WFSJ represents a unique collection of talent, expertise, and experience, all united around a shared passion for talking about science, technology, medicine, and a variety of other technical topics. It would be all but impossible to showcase this remarkable population all at once, but our social media leaders Federico Kukso and Valeria Román have been making a modest attempt do so through their Science Journalist of the Week initiative — colourful profiles that you should have seen on Twitter. Rather than let that fleeting fame fade into the depths of the World Wide Web, we are pleased to collect those same profiles and store them here. Please meet some our members, and rest assured, there are plenty more where these came from!
