Public Talks

Public engagement is critical for demystifying the processes of science, informing the public of exciting new developments, and inspiring the next generation of scientists. In order to promote these goals, I co-founded the local chapter of Astronomy on Tap, a public lecture series about all things astronomy related. I also regularly give public talks about my current work at the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy as well as all things astronomical. Here you can find a listing of upcoming talks in addition to an archive of some of my recent events.
