Kyle Marian Viterbo is an engagement producer at Science Friday. She is working to increase opportunities for meaningful connections between our mission and the diverse audiences we serve. As a former physical anthropologist turned science communicator, Kyle loves sharing hilarious stories about human evolution, hidden museum collections, and the many ways Indiana Jones is a terrible archaeologist.
Before joining the SciFri team, Kyle worked with Guerilla Science to bring science experiences to unexpected spaces. She also started “The Symposium: Academic StandUp,” a show and workshop series that uses sharp, socially-mindful comedy to challenge academic norms and champion inclusive science communication.
While gaining an MSc in Science Communication and Public Engagement from the University of Edinburgh, she fell in love with stand-up comedy and has been using it ever since to understand how moments of laughter connect all of us.
