2024 talks & trainings

Updated: Feb 1

I usually lead a handful of workshops, talks, and facilitated sessions each year. They tend to be about strategic planning or assessment, science communication, and art-science integration.

Scroll down for this year's sessions!

I'll update this list as more details/sessions are finalized. Hope to see you at/online for some of these!
