Speaking

I am interested in speaking to diverse audiences of all levels about cosmology and astrophysics, outreach and public engagement in the sciences, and career paths in physics and astronomy. I seek to convey information about these complex topics in an accessible and engaging way. This list includes my research presentations as well as public engagement appearances, panel events, tours, and radio interviews.
