I’m a Professor!

One month in and it’s still hard to believe.  I’ve got a new position, teaching some fantastic students at Queensborough Community College in Bayside, Queens.  It’s a lot of work but I am totally loving it.  I’m still affiliated with AMNH as a Research Associate, so I’ll still be getting my Science on one or two days a week.

New Jersey appearance

I’m looking forward to exploring Voorhees State Park in New Jersey in a few weeks.  I’ll be giving a public talk on black holes and gravitational waves there on July 23 at 8:30 pm.  Hosted by the New Jersey Astronomical Association, there will be stargazing at the observatory afterwards too (weather permitting, as always).  Come out and see if you are in the area!

Update: my talk was recorded and you can watch it here!

Check out my feature on the RealSpace Podcast!

I was lucky to meet up with Paul Sutter in early 2015, where he recorded an interview with me on the RealSpace podcast.  I ramble on about black holes, weird high school experiences, and roller derby.  You can listen to the long version here or check out a quick video of the end, where I apparently decide that it’s OK for people to record me singing.  This may have been a poor decision on my part.
