Outreach

For a complete list of academic talks, outreach work, membership of professional organizations, and additional media, please see my Curriculum vitae.

As a scientist it is my job to seek avenues for exploration and untold stories around every corner. Enthralled in my youth by the artful prose of wildlife presenters such as Sir David Attenborough, Chris and Martin Kratt, and David Suzuki, and inspired by a generation of online content creators who pioneered an era limited only by their imagination, I’ve made it my mission to share these stories to wider audiences.

My goals are two-fold: (1) to foster a personal connection with young audiences showing that science, and the diverse range of scientists that are pushing the boundaries of global knowledge, can be a lot of fun and (2) to give an honest portrayal of the mindset and processes by which scientific discoveries are made. Through in-person presentations, audio-visual media, and the power of the written word, I aim to inspire future generations of young scientists to integrate critical-thinking and the scientific method into their day-to-day lives and perhaps pursue a career in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM).
