About Your Instructor
Hi! I'm Dr Tullio Rossi, award-winning science communicator, marine biologist and graphic designer. As Founder of the science communication agency “Animate Your Science”, I help researchers tell their story to the world.
I've had the privilege of training over 4,000 researchers from 45 countries in the art of effective science communication since 2017. Rest assured, the guidance I provide in my trainings is the culmination of years of real-world experience. These aren't just theoretical insights; these are the very same techniques we employ every day when crafting animations and graphics for our diverse clientele.
I'm eager to share this body of knowledge to empower your students and researchers to make a lasting impact with their scientific insights.
I personally invited Dr. Tullio Rossi to Xiamen University for a 5-week course in science communication. His course is essential; it fills a gap in academia by teaching career-critical communication skills.
Dr. Rossi himself is incredibly personable and fosters an environment where even the most reserved feel encouraged to participate. I can't recommend this course enough for any institution serious about cultivating well-rounded scientists.

I was expecting a 4-hour workshop starting at 5 AM to be tough to get through, but time has flown by, and I feel like I have lots of tools I can apply to my work going forward.
Thank you Tullio.

I submitted my first ever poster at a technical conference and not only received many compliments, but also won two poster prizes!
I just wanted to say thank you for your help, and I am sure that I will continue to make good use of all the information for many years to come.
