I’m always keen to chat (in person or by Skype) with undergrads, grad students, departments, or any other group on a variety of topics outside my research:
- Diversity in STEM fields (including women and LGBT folk in STEM)
- Alternative academic (altac) careers (particularly at a research NGO)
- Why scientists should study improv
- Blogging, social media, and outreach in science
I have been a stage actor and improvisor for 15 years, and have spoken to high school, undergraduate, graduate, and faculty groups. If you or your group is interested, get in touch.
