Asian Scientist x PHD Comics: Where Art & Science Collide!

Are you tired of being a starving grad student and wondering if it’s possible to be a non-starving artist?

Here’s your chance to meet Jorge Cham, the brains behind PHD Comics, a wildly popular comic strip about life (or the lack thereof) in academia.

Jorge, who has a PhD in robotics from Stanford University, will be speaking at a public masterclass on science communications on 8 July 2017, from 2 to 4.30pm at Singapore Management University’s Ngee Ann Kongsi Auditorium.

Brought to you by Asian Scientist Magazine, the talk will cover the following:

  • • How Jorge broke out of academia into the world of comics, books, online TV and movies.
  • • How to turn doodling not just into a viable career, but a media empire.
  • • How to effectively communicate challenging, technical concepts to a layman audience.
  • • How science needs art, and vice versa.

If you’ve ever read PHD Comics and said, “that’s me!” or secretly pined for a life outside the windowless lab, come attend Jorge’s first-ever public talk in Singapore.

Geeks and non-geeks alike are welcome!

Date: 8 July 2017
Time: 2:00 to 4:30 PM
Venue: Singapore Management University, Ngee Ann Kongsi Auditorium, 60 Stamford Rd, Singapore 178900
