Media Portfolio

I love using multimedia to share neat science stories! Scroll down or click the links to see my video, audio, and infographics projects.

Video

Why Do Sulfur Batteries Fail?
As the editor in chief for the Transformations newsletter, I worked with PNNL‘s videographer on this video. I helped outline the story and I interviewed the scientists while they were on camera.

 

Change From Within
Co-produced with Aylin Woodward. We outlined the story, interviewed the scientists, and edited the video together. Video cross-posted on American Astronomical Society blog and social media and UCSC social media.


Audio


Seeing through Shifting Clouds
In this five-minute podcast, I talk about how astronomers use a giant laser to get crystal-clear views of far-away celestial objects. Then we get to go on a tour of the Lick Observatory in San Jose, California. Featuring interviews with UCSC’s Dr. Claire Max and Lick Observatory’s Dr. Elinor Gates. This podcast pairs with my feature story Seeing Shifting Cells.

From the very far away to the very small

Adaptive optics is a powerful tool for both astronomers and biologists.

Play with the sliders below to see how adaptive optics can sharpen our views of the skies and the brain.

The swirling gases in our atmosphere blur our view of Uranus. But adaptive optics clears it up.

  Brain tissue blurs our view of the neurons deep inside. But adaptive optics clears up individual neuron dendrites in a living mouse brain.

Infographic created to accompany my feature story Seeing Shifting Cells. I used Knight Lab’s Juxtapose to create the sliders, but I created the infographic itself with HTML.
