I am a science communication advocate and researcher. I am currently the Kavli Civic Science Fellow, working to help scientific societies support their members’ public engagement efforts. My goal is to lead the development of systems and channels that will result in more effective and sustainable supports for scientists at the intersection of science and society.
I’m also a member of the Leadership Team for ComSciCon, a series of science communication workshops for graduate students. As the Vice-Chair of this team, I work to ensure the sustainable expansion of ComSciCon workshops throughout the U.S. and Canada through fundraising and leading the ComSciCon Ambassadors program. In addition, I lead a team of program evaluators to ensure that our workshops are designed to have the greatest impact possible.
When not advocating for the communication of science, I’m advocating for science itself as a volunteer for Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL). As part of a collective effort to advance the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (HR 763), I contribute to media efforts and grassroots events. I also lead the Diversity & Inclusion working group for CCL-Virginia.
Finally, I am a creator. You can find some of the things I’ve made in my Etsy store.
