Community Matters: Dr. Colleen Iversen and the intersection of science, art, and community.
Listen to a conversation with enthusiasm for science, art, and community.
In an occasionally emotional segment Tuesday morning, John invited his friend (and collaborator/boss) Dr. Colleen Iverson to discuss her enthusiasm for science, art, and community. In addition to her 'day job' as a Senior Staff Scientist at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Colleen also creates breathtaking multimedia embroidery featuring her scientific subjects, special places, and the interests of her friends and family. Their discussion ranges from the biology of root growth (why do roots sometimes die back in a healthy plant?), how Covid-19 inspired her art, and the deep meaning of a gift of wild strawberries. It's an incredible radio segment, and a written transcript won't do it justice. Please enjoy, and Colleen, we hope to hear from you again soon!
