          About This Event

          Summary

          Jean-luc Doumont takes a good look at what is a frequently yet very often poorly used communication device in papers and presentations: graphs. He discusses how to choose the right graph for a given data set and a given research question, how to optimize the graph’s construction to reveal the data, and finally how to phrase a useful caption.

          About the presenter: An engineer from the Louvain School of Engineering and PhD in applied physics from Stanford University, Jean-luc Doumont now devotes his time and energy to training engineers, scientists, business people, and other rational minds in effective communication, pedagogy, statistical thinking, and related themes. With his rational background, Jean-luc approaches communication in an original, engineering-like way that contrasts sharply with the tradition of the field, rooted in the humanities. He is thus well received by students and professionals in search of a method they can apply with the same rigor they have come to value in every other aspect of their occupations. An articulate, entertaining, and thought-provoking speaker, Jean-luc successfully reaches a wide range of audiences around the world, in English, French, Dutch, and Spanish—as a trainer or invited speaker at an array of companies, top-ranked universities, research laboratories, and international conferences. Jean-luc is the author of Trees, maps, and theorems, a critically acclaimed book on “effective communication for rational minds”, and of the Nature series English communication for scientists on nature.com.
