I'm a PhD physicist and I do science education and outreach. I'm a science journalist and podcaster, and I've done some live webcasts too. I was recently a postdoctoral fellow at the Exploratorium Teacher Institute, where I ran professional development workshops for high school science teachers.
I am now a Science Teaching Fellow at the University of Colorado at Boulder, through their Science Education Initiative. We are reforming junior-level undergraduate courses to improve student learning. I'm doing research to assess the impact of our reforms
