I'm a scientist and communications specialist with the California Institute for Water Resources. I am passionate about approaches for increasing the relational capacity of the science community at institutional and individual levels. I work at the intersection of science communication, community engagement, and relationship-building, particularly focused on water and the environment. I write about these things all over (see recent writing below), as well as on my blog the Science Unicorn and our water institute blog The Confluence. I tweet at @frkearns and Instagram @fkearns.
