Outreach

  • During my time at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics (Fall 2015-Summer 2016), I volunteered to assist with astronomy experiments during Girls’ Day, an initiative by the German government to help girls learn more about male-dominated careers.

  • Since moving to Tucson (Fall 2016-present), I have given a couple talks informing the local public about the exciting high-redshift science we expect to learn from JWST, one to the Sonara Astronomical Society in Green Valley, AZ and the other to the local Tucson community via Space Drafts (aka Astronomy on Tap).

  • In Spring 2017, I was a volunteer presenting physics experiments to the public at the Science City event during the Tucson Festival of Books.

  • In Spring 2017, I presented physics experiments to local elementary through high-school students at Flandrau Planetarium on a monthly basis. I also responded to letters written by 3rd graders in Tucson with astronomy-themed questions. I was very happily surprised with the creativity and thoughtfulness of the questions!

  • ​​From Fall 2017 to Spring 2018, I helped teach science in a classroom setting to elementary students via the Project Astro Program run through NOAO.
