Speaking & Outreach

Sharing Research

“Communication is not something you add on to science; it is of the essence of science.” – Alan Alda

As scientists it is imperative that we share our research, not just with each other, but with the public in order to educate, excite, and explain what it is we do and why we do it. I take every opportunity to share my science with anyone who will listen.
