Correction: Apparently, he is visiting professor at the faculty of School of Journalism at Stony Brook University, and works with the Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University.
When I checked out the web site for the university, and clicked on the "Centers" link, I could not find "Center for Communicating Science" :-(
A recent name change? A bug at the web site?
