Outreach & Education

Talks, trips, and programs I've taken part in to share astronomy and science with more people. Would you like me to come talk to a group or class? Please contact me, I would probably love to!

  • In June 2023, I was granted the remarkable honor of giving the commencement address to this year's graduating class at my beloved high school alma mater, the Nightingale Bamford School. You can watch my address here (roughly 47:50 - 1:07:00).

  • As a postdoc at Princeton, I've led a bilingual Spanish-English observing night for primary school students. I helped run similar observing events while at Arizona State.
  • Reporting on my visit to a Spanish class in 2021 to talk about my experience observing in the Atacama desert, and the intersection of astronomy, land, and politics.:
  • A highlight of my Fulbright experience was supporting my mentor, Dr. Thebe Medupe, in the 2016 Winter School he helped create for South Africa's National Astrophysics and Space Science Programme. I led a small group of math and physics undergraduate students in a project measuring the photometry of stars in clusters using the Virtual Observatory. I also helped mentor and manage the larger group of undergraduates in this wonderful experience.
