‘First make people laugh, and then make them think’. Humor can be a powerful way to attract attention and convey your message. However, it is also challenging to find the right balance between funny quips and scientific content. In this talk, Jente Ottenburghs will share some tips and tricks on how he has managed to blend stand-up comedy and science communication.

Jente Ottenburghs, is a lecturer at University of Wageningen. He worked as a Postdoc at Karolinska Institutet and Uppsala University after he obtained his PhD from University of Wageningen. Throughout his career, he experimented with different ways of Science communication and also did stand-up comedy. 

Researchers in all stages of their career, who want to spice up their talks, are welcome to attend and could find the talk useful. Branching out in the ways to present one’s research can make talks more interesting and memorable and can help to convey the messages to the audience.
