I believe that communication of scientific research to the broader public is important so that we can better use evidence-based practices to address issues. Below are several of the approaches I have used to communicate my research.


Ted-Ed lesson

In 2016, I collaborated with TED-Ed and colleagues Adam Pritchard and Matt Borths to create a lesson on extinction that has been viewed nearly 700,000 times.


Museum & other outreach Research talks

I present my research and what it means in a broader context for society at museums to both specialized and general audiences. I recently spoke to the University of Wyoming Geological Museum's "Darwin Days" event, which was covered by Wyoming Public Radio, and the Long Island Children's Museum in concert with their exhibit, "Dinosaurs, Land of Fire and Ice." I have also spoken about my research at a PBS NOVA ScienceCafe. If you are interested in having me speak at your museum, please contact me



Classroom lectures

To inspire students to become scientifically literate citizens, I lecture to elementary, middle, and high school students. If you are interested in having me speak in your classroom, please contact me.

I have written two articles for non-technical publications, one for Scientific American with Kristi Curry Rogers about long-necked dinosaurs and one in TIME ideas about the complicated history of "Brontosaurus."
