Director of Communications
John German is a lifelong science communicator. He grows and engages SFI's worldwide community, articulates (for a wide variety of audiences) SFI's ongoing interdisciplinary research in complex adaptive systems, and advances the Institute's credibility and reputation. Working with a top-notch team of science writers, editors, designers, illustrators, photographers, and videographers -- and SFI's leadership, scientists, and staff -- he directs the Institute's science news operation, its online and social media presence, its publications, and its relationships with the local, national, and international news media. He also gives a pretty good site tour. His past includes 20 years as a science communicator at Sandia National Laboratories, a background in professional writing and environmental science, and an upbringing steeped in science and science education.
