Take Your Publications, Posters, and Slides To The Next Level!
My goal is to help you become a more effective communicator. I am able to facilitate an immersive online experience so you can learn while interacting with fellow scientists from the comfort of your home or office.
- Benefits for researchers: You will understand and learn to apply effective visual strategies to structure and design your images so your audiences will more easily understand your complex messages. This knowledge will be applied also to your slides and posters, so you learn how to apply it to all of your visual science communication and presentations. It is a training that fundamentally changes how participants think about communication, not only in science, but also in life.
- Personalized feedback & interactivity: you will be able to submit your materials (figures/slides) before the event. I will make a selection and give you personalized feedback. You will also discuss your materials with other participants and learn to receive and give informed and constructive feedback. It is an immersive webinar, structured, easy to follow, memorable, useful and fun.

My goal is to help scientists effectively communicate.
Drawing on various fields, I am always on the lookout for new approaches that can be readily applied by researchers.
Besides workshops and webinars, I consult innovative companies in acquiring grants and private funding.
Before Seyens, I worked as Head of computer vision at a startup and as an evaluator of Horizon 2020 EU projects.
I hold a PhD and was a PostDoc in computer science at University of Ljubljana and a Fulbright Scholar at Northeastern University, Boston.
Webinar • Effective Visual Communication of Science
Through understanding human visual perception, you will learn how to visually communicate your complex research ideas and results, to make them effortlessly understood by any specific audience (scientists or non scientists). Everything I teach is focused on understanding and usefulness, because I know that smart people want clear, precise and actionable advice straight-up.
Duration & content: Most organizers pick the 1,5-day webinar; I also run shorter events.
