Media

I am often asked for comments on issues pertaining to science skepticism (specifically climate and vaccine skepticism), communication strategies, language use, and misinformation (especially on social media and in online spaces).

If you are a member of the media interested in contacting me for comments or an interview, please reach out via email (emma.bloomfield@unlv.edu) or visit my Experts Directory page through UNLV.
