Blog posts

I aim to publish a plain-language narrative alongside scientific publications I am involved with. Currently, most of these go to Forming Worlds. Below please find a list of all previous blog posts that I either wrote myself or contributed to.

Astrobites – The astro-ph Reader's Digest

Astrobites is a daily astrophysical literature journal written by graduate students in astronomy around the world. Its goal is to present one interesting paper per day in a brief format that is accessible to undergraduate students in the physical sciences who are interested in active research. During my authoring activity for Astrobites from 2014–2016 I published a variety of blog articles. Currently, I am still active in the Astrobites community in administrative and supportive roles.
