Research Interests

I am interested in communicating science in diverse ways, developing effective strategic documents to help programs run successfully, using plain language, and designing information products that are visually appealing and audience-appropriate. My job gives me the opportunity to constantly learn about human interactions and how we communicate with each other. So much of what we strive to do depends on our ability to convey our ideas clearly and compellingly. I think everything we write, from interoffice memos to program charters to magazine stories to powerpoints, should carry its message in a straightforward manner that creates a context in which people find it easy to think.
