Data Visualisation Workshop

13:45 - 14:45 Improve your skills in how to visualize your research findings - Andreas Dahlin*

     As fluent as we may be in writing or talking about our science and results, we may still lack one essential element of scientific communication in our repertoire: the translation of our work into clear, pedagogic images and figures. In this workshop, Andreas Dahlin will share tips and tricks on how you can improve your visuals for your next presentation or poster.

* Andreas Dahlin has a PhD in Analytical Chemistry, Uppsala university from 2005. He thereafter worked as a project leader and researcher in an interdisciplinary project at Uppsala university where his group developed a new microdialysis catheter for clinical use. In May 2017, he became an adjunct professor in analytical chemistry (docent), Uppsala university. He has always been interested in presenting science with high quality, pedagogical images.

In the beginning of 2016, Andreas founded Visualize Your Science AB ( and decided to dedicate all his time to help researchers become better science communicators using illustrations, visualizations, and animations. Today he gives courses to more than 300 PhD-students and researchers every year. His students come from all over the world but mainly Uppsala university, KTH, Chalmers, Helsinki University, SLU, Stockholm University, and Gothenburg University. He also provides courses for research-based companies.
