I’m the Director of Outreach for Columbia University’s Department of Astronomy.
I’m also a freelance science writer and communicator. My work has been published in The Atlantic, Smithsonian, Now.Space, Scientific American, Slate, and Nautilus. I’ve also hosted and appeared in science and STEM educational videos for NBC News, City University of New York, and Disney Junior. You can find all my work under the Portfolio tab (from the drop down menu, upper left). You can also chose to view writing, audio, video, or events separately.
In all my spare time, I help out at The Rachel Maddow Show as their in-house astrophysicist.
I also enjoy communicating solely in GIFs whenever humanly possible.
