LET'S GET EXCITED ABOUT SCIENCE!
I’m Ive Velikova (she/elle/тя), a science educator and communicator based in Tiohtià:ke (Montreal), on the traditional unceded territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk).
I am a science communicator leveraging empathetic science storytelling to build climate optimism.
Equipped with my Masters in Science Communication, I use enthusiastic storytelling to build trust in science and mobilize communities to take action on climate change.
I am a frequently requested keynote speaker who loves engaging folks on a broad range of science & climate topics, including climate justice, misinformation, and science storytelling. I’ve built a human-powered piano on the streets of Toronto, talked medical jargon in a California desert, and shared the impact of dancing on the brain at a local drag show.
I also host Science Sucks, a podcast where scientists share the ups and downs of research and how it impacts our lives.
I am currently seeking hosting & presenting opportunities in science radio, TV, and video – let’s connect!
