New social media co-ordinator a familiar face

Chances are you may have encountered Dylan Kristy in some capacity at the University of Windsor.

Whether Kristy reported on your research, engaged with you on social media, or stopped to talk on campus, he has been active on many fronts since joining the UWindsor staff in early 2017.

Describing himself as a “recovering newspaper reporter,” he spent eight years working as a reporter and senior copy editor at the Windsor Star before joining the University as its research communications co-ordinator.

Kristy takes up a new position this week as social media co-ordinator in the Office of Public Affairs and Communications, succeeding Tim Brunet, now experiential learning development officer in the Faculty of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.

“I’ve had a blast sharing the amazing research stories that are happening all over campus,” Kristy said. “I look forward to continuing to tell the stories about the University’s amazing people, events and research through its social media platforms.”
