Outside the lab...
I've been involved in different science outreach, policy and communication initiatives to help build an engaging and inclusive science culture in Canada. This includes science writing & editing, public speaking and developing training resources. Every now and then, I speak about different aspects of science, or lead a workshop related to science communication. Feel free to reach out!
