How to Reach People with Your Research: A Discussion with Elissa Redmiles


Listen to this interview of Elissa Redmiles, Faculty Member and Research Group Leader at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems; Founder and Managing Researcher of Human Computing Associates; and Visiting Scholar at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University. We talk about reaching people with your research.

Elissa Redmiles : "And so, when I think about communicating to my own specific research community, I think about what is my call to action that I would like my fellow researchers to do. And maybe they won't do that, and they'll do something completely different. But still, I publish to let them know about a space and to let them know about the problems in that space and so perhaps better understand why I or we or other researchers think that those problems are meaningful and worth addressing. It's my hope always that this can serve as the motivation for the technical work that my readers will pick up from there and develop in their own research."
