Early Universe Explorer

Activist. writer. speaker.

As part of the profoundly human enterprise of science, I work to understand the origin and evolution of the universe and its contents. As part of my scientific work, I promote equal opportunities for people traditionally locked out of the mainstream scientific community.

Science is a human enterprise that belongs to all of us, in all of our configurations.
