Speaking during a panel at Narrating Science, Toronto, 2017. (credit Amy Chambers)

I have given over 40 lectures about science and media. Some of my lectures have included presentations at the American Institute of Physics, American Philosophical Society, Cornell University, and WGBH Studios.

My work has been featured nationally on NPR’S InnovationHub and PRI’s The Pulse. From 2016 to 2018, I was a regular contributor to the WPRB radio show, These Vibes are too Cosmic. Additionally, I have been interviewed alongside science educator Bill Nye and The Big Bang Theory’s David Saltzberg.
