For a complete list of all my outreach experience, see my CV.
I have given outreach talks for school groups, both within the US and internationally, and community events including: University of Toledo White House Astronomy Night, The Toledo Astronomical Association, The General Motors Astronomy Club, and Ritter Planetarium Astronomy Day.
Dragon Con is a large fantasy & science fiction convention, held every year over Labor Day Weekend. In September of 2018, I served as a panelist on their science track, educating the public on careers in science, and the accuracy of science in fantasy/science fiction. I also served on the organizing committee for the Science Track, and was a guest panelist again for Dragoncon Goes Virtual in September 2020.
