Meet the Presenter

Alan Alda, actor and writer, has had a lifelong interest in science. After interviewing hundreds of scientists, Mr. Alda became convinced that many researchers have wonderful stories to tell, but some need help in telling them. Mr. Alda is one of the founders of the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University.

Mr. Alda has led workshops that use improvisational theater games to help scientists communicate more directly and personally. He was co-chair of the 2009 World Science Festival in New York City, hosted the 2010 documentary mini-series The Human Spark, and has written a play about the life of Marie Curie.
