Communication to General Audiences

I have experience communicating to general audiences, including lectures, panels, blog posts, and interviews. I have also been quoted in news articles. Many of them, including links to videos or articles, are listed below.

At right is an interview with the Columbia Alumni Association, filmed while I was a postdoc at Columbia University/Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, about why I study atmospheric science, hurricanes, and climate.
