2014 Keynote Luncheon Speaker

Keynote Address:

Dr. Jon Hammermeister - Professor, Department of Physical Education, Health and Recreation


"Thrill-seeking explorer vs science nerd: How to use your research skills as the springboard to experience thrill, excitement, and satisfaction in your career."


This presentation will focus on three themes which should resonate with all researchers - two of which are threatening to most of us (i.e., living a boring life and being labeled a "nerd)" and another which captivates most of us (i.e., the desire for excitement).  In this presentation we will explore how geek-like researchers such as myself can leverage their "dull and boring" scientific skill set to build a life that can be engaging, rewarding, imaginative, and which may actually make the world a slightly better place for everyone else.
