Public Outreach

Adler_Planetarium_Different_AngleI’ve done some significant work on public outreach throughout grad school, including a large amount of work with Adler Planetarium in Chicago.  Since 2011, I’ve been giving hour-long public lectures as part of the Conversations with an Astronomer series, which brings local astronomers and astrophysicists down to Adler to talk about their work and recent developments in the field with visitors to the planetarium.  As part of this work, I’ve developed (with some significant help) several high-resolution visualizations of science concepts, including black holes in globular clusters, and gravitational waves.  Check out the movies page for more information.
