Hi! My name is Susanna L Harris, PhD, and I’m a science communicator and mental health advocate. I believe clear communication builds communities, and I help scientists share their work – with the public, with investors, and with each other.

I founded PhD Balance to break the stigma around mental illness in higher education and create spaces where grad students can have open conversations around the challenges we face.

I host and present public speaking events about mental health, academic support, and science communication. Schedule me for your next event.
