As a scientist and conservationist, I firmly believe that science exposure drives social good, and that scientists have a duty to facilitate that exposure. As someone who fell in love with science and the ocean through a single middle school field trip to SeaCamp, I understand that even a single good exposure to science- especially at a young age- can have a life long impact. Therefore, I consider speaking to the public about both my work and science generally to be an important part of my job.
That’s why I regularly engage in a variety of outreach events, including local community events, remote classroom discussions, media interviews, and more, pro-bono. I’m always looking for people to reach, so if you’d like me to engage with your class or community group, fill out a contact form here. If you like, you can also follow me on Twitter.
