I have founded two blogs where graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and science professionals work together to summarize recent journal articles for the general public using language anyone with a high school science education can understand. I am also on the ComSciCon National Workshop Leadership Committee. I am very interested in making science communication and community outreach an integral part of my teaching and research program as a PI.
Oceanbites, founded in September 2013, is a blog where oceanography graduate students and postdoctoral researchers describe the latest in cutting-edge oceanography research for the broader public.
Envirobites, which will begin publishing content in August 2017, is a blog where graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and environmental professionals will write posts describing recent research in environmental science topics, including urban pollution, toxicology, and climate change.
