In The Media

I regularly work with journalists on a range of topics, and sometimes they even cite me or invite me onto their podcast or show!

This is an extremely unreliable list of media mentions — it’s here as much as a resource for myself as for anyone else as I lose track way to fast of who I’ve spoken with and on what. It also doesn’t include posts to my Substack, Medium, or 2020 Science.

And if it looks somewhat sparse, it’s probably because the list is still being built out.
