The webinar experience
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.
- Content: I will give you actionable advice so you can improve your own visualizations right away. Everything we discuss will be structured and memorable, and the experience enjoyable and fun. I aim to change the way you think about communication not only in your science, but also in your life.
- Personalized feedback & interactivity: you will be able to submit your materials (figures/slides/posters) before the event. I will make a selection and give personalized feedback and you will discuss your figures with other participants. You will be able to ask any question regarding visual communication of science and get immediate answers. I also have planned quizzes, discussions, and group work.

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 4h and 1-day events.
