I always make an effort to bring my work to the public, either through popular media, public presentations, or just answering questions.
public outreach & media (since 2011)
- Our paper in Science on global reductions in mammalian movements was covered widely (Altmetric score of 777), including the New York Times, Science, Nature, Der Spiegel, and El Pais.
