Inspired by a workshop at the Kavli Center run by the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science, I have worked to bring my own research to a broader audience. I have also learned that my story of becoming a mathematician resonates with others interested in mathematics and research and general. Here are some links to my public outreach activities.
