In public outreach my goal is to see a person's transformation from knowing to understanding to gaining insight into science.
2013 - A public talk I gave at STScI (video) in April on the topic of Discovery and Characterization of Planets around Binary Stars.
2012 Conceived and co-organized the Transit of Venus Event at Johns Hopkins in June 2012 - funded by the Maryland Space Grant Consortium, it proved to be a very successful event attended by over 400 people.
2010-2012 Annual presentation at the Johns Hopkins Physics Fair, where my latest demonstration was a simple planet detection simulation. Out table is regularly visited by 60-80 people. We know because we give out pre-counted flyers.
2010 I co-founded the student run AstrobiologyForum@JHU to discuss the latest research in the field in an informal setting.
