Jason Priem


I'm a 4th-year PhD student at UNC-Chapel Hill, and the cofounder of ImpactStory, and open-source web tool that helps scientists and other academics get rewarded for doing accessible, engaged, and Web-native science--things like blogging, tweeting, sharing open data, and writing open-source software.

I've got a background in history, art, and education, and was a middle-school teacher for five years before discovering a passion for science and making science work better.
