We shouldn't have to be an expert to understand science. To help this cause, I write and discuss a variety of topics related to science and technology to help make this material accessible to people of all ages and professions.

I have also served as an intermediary between the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Neuroscience at Arizona State University and the public, with the goal of sharing neuroscience-related information to external organizations. This includes giving talks, attending events, and generating documentation to support the program and those interested in neuroscience.

I have helped to create  a promotional video, pamphlet, and bookmark, in order to help represent the Neuroscience program at ASU. This work was in conjunction with the School of Life Sciences media team.
