I attended ComSciCon Michigan (MI) in 2018 in Ann Arbor, MI and I am helping to organize the 2019 ComSciCon MI. I also helped organize the Graduate Academic Conference 2019 for the Council of Graduate Students by helping scientists to learn how to creatively depict science. I attended Science Talk 2019 where I was able to network with other science communicators and tell them about the piece I wrote on Joe Palca after I interviewed him for the Science Talk blog.

I am passionate about science communication. I helped start MSU SciComm, a student organization to bring awareness and training on science communication at MSU. I also helped found The Sci-Files, an Impact 89 FM radio show that focuses on interviewing students about their research to spread the word about science and inspire the public.
