Communicating science is something I love. I have personally tried making accessible communication of my work a goal throughout my time as a scientist with an enduring commitment to a wide range of science communication and community engagement activities. As a graduate student at the Hopkins Marine Station, I have spoken to Stanford undergraduate freshman dorms, local community colleges, and Stanford Alumni. Outside of the university, my primary outreach activities have been facilitated through the National Geographic Society. Speaking at public-facing Nat Geo events in Washington D.C., Santa Cruz, and San Jose, and partnering with elementary classrooms virtually in Los Angeles and San Diego and in-person in San Mateo, I have had the opportunity to share the mysteries and beauty of the some of the lesser-known animals that call this planet home.
