Congratulations to Dr. Charles Hodgens for being chosen as an American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB) Ambassador! Charlie is a key member of our team, bridging our interest in model-driven scientific inquiry with his expertise in plant cell and molecular biology. This Ambassador experience will enable him to develop outreach resources that engage the general public in the mission of ASPB. Look out for the resources he will create as he explores new ways to communicate the roles of systems thinking and computational science in plant biology!
“ASPB Ambassadors are early career scientists (students and postdocs) and industry employees enlisted to communicate the mission and vision of the Society to other plant biologists and to the general public, to help ensure the ongoing vitality of the Society. These young leaders engage their campus communities in outreach activities, represent ASPB at section conferences, and contribute articles to the ASPB News. They also provide a voice for early career members in the Society, often lending input on key issues.“
