There’s no science without failure. But failure can also push scientists out of academia and prevent them from doing what they do best. I hope that this can change by sharing our failures, both in our science (as negative results), and our failures as scientists.
This is why I’ve shared my CV of Failures and started the How I Fail series, where I’ve since interviewed 30+ scientists about failure. The response has been great, but I’m still just getting started 🙂
If you want to join How I Fail (or you know somebody who should!), please get in touch here. I’m always happy to hear from people not yet represented by the series!
If you are interested in having me speak about failure (and connections to open science, social media and more) please check out my workshops page.
