Science communication and public outreach is a priority of mine. My main goal with my outreach is to make astronomy more approachable by encouraging and promoting accessible communication. I am involved in several regular outreach events which are described briefly below.
Also check out my Cosmos From Your Couch episodes, and my AstroTours talk for International Womens Day.
This is a monthly event put on by graduate students in the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics. There is typically a one hour talk by a student or postdoc followed by exhibits and planetarium shows.
This popular event is put on by the Dunlap Institute and typically happens every 3 months. It is an evening of entertaining talks with other games and plenty of roaming astronomers.
