About

Majken B. E. Christensen

I am an astrophysicist, and I own Astronomicca Outreach and Science Communication.

I worked with most universities in Denmark, gave more than a hundred public talks and wrote thousands of words for popular scientific articles. I have experience in academic career coaching, communication strategy and helping researchers and technical staff improve their communication toward the public, their colleagues, students and management.

I have a project management certification from Implement Consulting Group and a management reporting diploma from Deloitte. I also have a data mining (early machine learning) diploma from SAS Institute.
