My work as a physicist and public intellectual has taken me all over North America, to the Netherlands, Spain, and Taiwan. I enjoy sharing my research with the physics and/or astronomy department(s) and then pairing it with a public talk. My public talks range from more accessible science to the challenges of making the physics and astronomy communities more inclusive and reflective of the society at large, asking questions such as "Do Black Lives Matter in Science?" 

Organizations should endeavor to offer honoraria to any speakers being asked to present on topics outside of the academic discipline in which they are employed. Scientific organizations should make every effort to give scientists an opportunity to present on their research to colleagues in their discipline.In my case, I am employed as a particle physicist/cosmologist.

Previously I have been an invited speaker for scientific and/or public discussions at institutions and conferences such as:

  • Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
  • Yale University Department of Astronomy
  • University of Oxford, Wadham College
  • University of Cambridge, Cavendish Laboratory and Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences, and Humanities (CRASSH)
  • 2016 Pacific Science Congress, Taipei, Taiwan
  • Brown University Department of Physics
  • University of Michigan Department of Physics & Department of Astronomy with co-sponsorship from Department of Afroamerican and African Studies
  • Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics
  • Pennsylvania State University Department of Astronomy
  • University of Amsterdam Institute for High Energy Physics, Netherlands
  • University of Amsterdam Anton Pannekoek Institute for Astronomy, Netherlands
  • The Ohio State University Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics
  • University of Cincinnati Department of Physics and African American Cultural and Resource Center
  • The 12th Patras Workshop on Axions, WIMPS, and WISPS, Zaragoza, Spain (2015)
  • The Inaugural Inclusive Astronomy Conference (2015)
