As a renowned science communicator I am very active in education, public outreach and science policy making. Over the past 5 years alone I gave more than 100 academic and public presentations. I am an Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science alumnus, International Science Slammer, Famelab New York regional and Famelab Switzerland national finalist, AAS Astronomy Ambassador, contributor for various SciComm outlets, reappearing guest, organizer and host at Astronomy on Tap or Pint of Science.
