Teaching & Talks

I have always been an educator and I previously spent time as a high school math teacher and later a community college instructor. At Wake Tech Community College I taught precalculus and a supplemental course on growth-mindset in math.

I have given talks at the American Astronomical Society, the UT Austin Board of Visitors meeting and below is me speaking as a part of the campaign towards the Giant Magellan Telescope.

With my current citizen science project, Dark Energy Explorers, I lead workshops for K-12 teachers across the country and you can find educational materials I have developed on my teaching and talks page if you are interested in incorporating dark energy into your classroom.

I also have developed curricula for teaching within a planetarium for Fiske Planetarium at CU Boulder and conducted research on teaching climate change for UT Austin’s College of Natural Sciences.

You will be the first to see these galaxies, stars, meteors, black holes and more!
