I endeavor to communicate with my scientific
peers and the public - as well as policy makers and the communities within which I work - using clear and accessible language. This page describes some recent examples of my outreach efforts, including media contributions, live broadcasts with students from a research ship in the Indian Ocean, and a video about
deep-sea sediment transport.

Besides examining, describing, and taking samples from sediment cores for analyses, I engaged in live "Q&A with a scientist" broadcasts while onboard our ship, the Joides Resolution (J.R.). Communicating with secondary and high school students via live feeds from the ship's labs directly to classrooms, I answered questions about our expedition's goals, how to become a scientist, and what life is like aboard a research ship.
We also made an educational video while aboard the J.R. about turbidite sediment transport!
