Help Us Welcome Our New Staff!

This month, we are excited to announce the arrival of two new staff members to our team at Science Atlantic! We welcome Megan Krempa and Amelia St. John. 

Megan holds a bachelor’s degree (BAH’22) from the University of King’s College/Dalhousie University in the History of Science & Technology and Philosophy. She is passionate about making history accessible to everyone and is interested in digital archives and their application in helping to democratize science and its history. This summer, she is thrilled to be working on digitizing Science Atlantic’s trove of documents spanning all the way back to its very beginning in 1962. Besides digital archives, Megan is also a copyeditor and teaching assistant. She would like to pursue a Ph.D. in the History of Science, with a focus on women in physics. 

When she’s not obsessing over digitization practices, Megan is an ardent alto singer (primarily choral and classical) and hobby collector. She’s interested in almost anything under the sun: knitting, sewing, keyboards, bags, travel, cross-stitching, Linux, painting, restoring old objects…. the list goes on.

As a third-year marine biology and journalism student, Amelia believes that effective science communication is imperative for conserving and protecting the environment from climate impacts. She is excited to exercise her writing and storytelling skills as a Communications and Member Engagement Assistant to portray Science Atlantic’s significance as an organization. She aligns with Science Atlantic’s mission of building collaborations and partnerships within the Atlantic science community and is passionate about sustainability.

Outside of the classroom and office, Amelia is a part-time surfer and part-time shark enthusiast – perhaps these passions are what sparked her interest in science communication.

We look forward to the term with our new and continuing team members.
