Communication and dissemination of science outside of the university is vital to developing enthusiasm for and participation in STEM. I relish the opportunity to educate the public and spread fascination in the community. While at UC Berkeley I’ve supported outreach work at science fairs, the university open day, and at local schools through the Bay Area Science in Schools and Be A Scientist Programs.
Public lecture on the Earth’s core:
At UC Berkeley’s open day, CalDay 2018, I presented on the what we know about the Earth’s core and how we know it. Feel free to use my slides and notes.

Also on Cal Day I was talking to a family about how we can use a network for Earthquake Early Warning just as a small earthquake conveniently occurred in northern California.
The Bay Area Science Festival:
I supported the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory’s display at the Bay Area Science Festival in 2017. With props we introduced the children to earthquake science while speaking to the parents about earthquake preparedness.
