Assistant professor Mike Gruszczynski< is an expert on political communication, and assistant professor Nathan Geiger is an expert on climate communication. A study on political speech surrounding climate change was a natural fit for a collaboration.
The pair talked about their project Friday at a research colloquium presentation, “Climate Conversations and Collaborations.”
Geiger and Gruszczynski said collaboration can be beneficial in a variety of situations, particularly when people have complementary research interests or skillsets.
“Having the right people around, they can sometimes catch things you might miss,” Geiger said. “Most of the work I’ve done has been collaborative to some extent.”
