Event location


This event is the fifth in the MRI Anniversary Lecture Series, celebrating 20 years since the MRI Coordination Office was founded in 2001. This series aims to showcase MRI synthesis workshop research and build capacity in the mountain research community.

Invited speaker Gabrielle Vance is a Scientific Project Officer at the MRI. In addition to her B.A. and M.S. in geology, she has more than a decade of experience editing scientific manuscripts for international researchers. She also teaches English and has earned CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and SVEB (Switzerland Association for Continuing Education) certifications.

Communicating science is simple, but not easy. In this lecture, Gabrielle will illustrate four principles of effective scientific English with examples from recent MRI publications. These principles apply across disciplines and at multiple levels, from sentences to manuscripts. She will share concrete suggestions based on common challenges and recommend helpful resources.
