Thank you, mentors

Frontiers team

Amanda Baker
Project Manager
Amanda is always looking for ways to combine her two favorite things: science and communication. During her geoscience PhD she became a National Event Supervisor for Science Olympiad, volunteered with local elementary school classes, and taught a writing course on sustainable Earth systems . Now she is excited for the opportunity to make cutting-edge research accessible to the broadest audience possible - both through the articles published in Frontiers for Young Minds and the related content she highlights on the FYM companion blog on Scientific American Blog Network.
Michael Boitard
Production Specialist
Michael is an urban kid from Paris, who has always been fascinated by nature and its ability to evolve and overcome challenges. Following his PhD in Neurosciences filming migrating neurons with a microscope, he used scientific writing, exhibitions and activities in a zoological institution to inspire the public and engage their curiosity to discover and learn more about threatened species. Now at Frontiers, he is pursuing his passion of improving research distribution and impact at international level. He is responsible for transforming science articles into an attractive and comprehensive way for everyone to access knowledge, including our younger readers, through Frontiers for Young Minds.
Emma Clayton
Project Manager
Emma joined the Young Minds team in June 2016 and is based in our Swiss headquarters. After her MRes in Ecology and Environmental management, she worked on assessing extinction levels of various animal species, worked on wildlife conservation methods in Africa and spent some time teaching in the Swiss alps. Now she is excited to be involved in making new scientific discoveries open to our Young Minds audience and working with our scientists in supporting them to communicate their research.
