"No matter what you do, your job is to tell your story."

- Gary Vaynerchuk

Writing

Blogging is a great excuse to talk about complex, messy data science in a way that is fun and engaging! In addition to my own blogs, I've written guest blogs and columns in the past for PLOS, Beyond Chron, and Weighty Matters 
 

Speaking

Storytelling is even more fun when you can do it out loud. Since 2010, I've delivered dozens of talks on different topics to diverse audiences, ranging from career development for young scientists to presenting research to a National Governors Conference.
 

Podcasts

I've been a guest on podcasts with The JAMA Network, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and "Human Current." 
 

interviews 

Since 2011, I've participated in several interviews with major media outlets to discuss scientific findings. Click on icons to the right to see a sample of interviews with The New York Times, NPRand more.
 

Coursera

In 2016, I co-designed a new Coursera course - "Systems Science and Obesity" - in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University. The course provided an introduction to several types of complex systems modeling. Visit this Coursera website to watch my videos on system dynamics.
