Science communication is deeply important—without it, what's the point in doing research? I believe that science should be shared through as many creative outlets as possible, in order to reach a broad, diverse audience of people from all ages and backgrounds, who might connect to biology in different ways. I am determined to make my work as accessible as I can to everyone. Below are a handful of the outreach initiatives I have underway, or am plugged into:

​I wrote an article with Current Conservation on owl banding and the value of banding stations! Amazing artwork by Aindri Chakraborty.

I've been collaborating with Loes Roes, an incredibly talented science illustrator, to create a hummingbird infographic series! Check out her awesome B&B in Panama - where you can see tons of hummers!




I got to partner with Youthforce and the Behavioral Ecophysics Lab to talk about career paths and getting plugged into ornithology!

I've been working with museums since I was a first-year undergrad: first at the Oakes Museum and now at the Burke Museum! Museums are incredible educational powerhouses that allow us to foster connections between people and wildlife—sometimes local animals, sometimes ones that we'd never get to see otherwise! I have given many museum talks and been involved in museum social media, events, and behind-the-scenes collection tours—I've even designed some museum displays.
