About the Communication Lab

The EECS Communication Lab offers writing, speaking, and visual design support for scientists by scientists. 

Our Communication Advisors are EECS graduate students and postdocs who have been trained rigorously so that they are both content experts and communication coaches. Advisors are available to help you with individual coaching for any scientific communication task you are working on – from publications to conference talks.
