Updates: Some exciting things I’m working on

Cognitive Science Blogging: I’m co-teaching a Freshman Seminar at UCSD. We explore strategies for science communication, and students focus on iterating and honing their own  blog posts.

ComSciCon 2017: I’m working as the Program Organizing Committee chair for this year’s conference. ComSciCon is a workshop organized by grad students for graduate students to improve their science communication. I’m excited just daydreaming about the program our team has put together.
