Engagement

My research is driven by my interest in and enthusiasm for public engagement. I think it is critical that scientists are invested in working with and learning from their communities, and I have worked hard to ensure that this strong belief is reflected in both my professional and volunteer activities.

You can find a partial list of my talks, guest lectures, and posters here, as well as links to archived video footage of presentations when available.

I also regularly meet with classrooms at schools, community centers, and summer camps to share my research and chat about science and conservation with diverse audiences, both in person and online. I recently made some of my lesson plans available to assist teachers and families with remote learning during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.

From time to time, I share my thoughts on conservation, environmental policy, politics, and more through other writings, such as spoken word. These writings are archived here.
