Bina Venkataraman has strived to tell the story of our changing planet, as a journalist, teacher, and most recently by joining the Obama Administration as Senior Advisor for Climate Change Innovation. Since the summer of 2013, she has been leading the White House’s effort to unleash data on climate change in ways that yield insights and stories that resonate with communities, companies, and citizens.
Bina will be on leave from MIT, where over the past few years she has taught the communication of science and served as the policy deputy to the co-chair of President Obama’s science advisory council. She will still visit New England in the upcoming year, baited by lobster rolls and crisp fall evenings. To learn more about Bina, visit www.writerbina.com.
