My science engagement goals are two-fold: (1) to create space for traditionally underrepresented voices in the sciences and (2) to make science personally relevant to broader publics. While these efforts may involve translating jargon, they oftentimes require considering the larger structural barriers that have historically excluded people from STEM. I regularly advise on justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) issues at the University of Rhode Island and center my work and activism around these values.
