Dr. Jorge Cham, Author and Creator of PhD Comics, Spoke on Campus

Communication is key to expanding your career opportunities, and PhD Comics’ Dr. Jorge Cham shared his expertise during two free research-communication career presentations and a hands-on workshop at the University of Kentucky on Thursday, September 6.

Dr. Cham earned his PhD in Robotics from Stanford University and was an instructor and Research Associate at Caltech before leaving the Academy to focus on PhD Comics full time. The nationally known author, filmmaker and comic book creator spoke on his unique approach to science communication and popular projects, such as his videos explaining the Higgs Boson particle. His visit was co-sponsored by The Graduate School.
