If you haven’t heard of Dawn Bazley, you’ve seen her on TV (@CBC) talking about the proper way to use masks during #Covid19.

Portrait of biologist Dr. Dawn Bazley by Alison Garwood-Jones

@DrBazley is field biologist, #STEMStar, and mentor to hundreds of #STEMgirls and guys who gather around her like ducklings at York University in Toronto.

In addition to being a full professor, she is the former Director of York’s Institute for Research Innovation and Sustainability. 

REWIND: I met Dawn at @PodCampToronto a couple of years ago and quickly realized that her knowledge of tech was as wide and deep as the grasslands she studies. 

In June, Dawn asked me to draw a portrait she could use for her social media channels and user ID in podcasts and webinars. 

I sent the image this morning and by this afternoon it appeared in a virtual interview she did with @JoVEJournal, who wanted to hear more about how she has pivoted during the pandemic from IRL instruction to virtual field courses.

Dawn is not outfitted with brakes.

Like Jane Jacobs, she is what I call a true #KickAss Woman.
