Meet CxC: Becky Carmichael, CxC Coordinator
June 23, 2014
This week we highlight one of CxC’s coordinators, Dr. Becky Carmichael, coordinator for the College of Science, College of Agriculture and School for the Coast and Environment.
An Indiana native, Dr. Carmichael received her doctorate from LSU and has been the science coordinator of CxC since 2012.
Dr. Carmichael works hard to emphasize the need for communication training in science disciplines. As the science coordinator, she works closely with students to improve their communication skills, including writing and public speaking. She also works with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) and the summer undergraduate research program assisting students with their scientific presentations.
She enjoys working with a diverse group of students. Dr. Carmichael also gets the opportunity to work with a creative faculty. She enjoys attending the Science Café and that allows her to learn more about the research taking place on campus.
In her free time, away from work, Dr. Carmichael spends time with her 2-year-old son. As an ecologist, Dr. Carmichael loves spending time outside and playing with rocks. Most of her hobbies involve food, as she loves to bake and discover new cuisine. While she enjoys photography, she says she gets most of her great shots from “dumb luck.”
