Blog posts & online talks

I publish blog articles and online videos that summarise and narrate scientific publications I was involved in. Currently, most of the blog posts go to Forming Worlds. Videos of conference presentations and paper summaries related to my research can be found here. Below please find blog posts and videos that I either created 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. Until 2019 I remained active in the Astrobites community in various administrative and supportive roles.
