Writing

While it’s not always the final product, everything that I create (videos, podcasts, blog posts, etc.) starts with writing. Here are just a few things I’ve done recently.

On my blog, True Anomalies, I often write about episodes from the history of science, exciting planetary science news, or events and issues in the world of science communication.

Here’s a brief video I wrote and narrated for PHD Comics on Georges Cuvier and the history of mass extinctions:

Here’s a profile of┬áComputer Science undergraduate Ruyan Chen that I wrote for the USC Viterbi School of Engineering, which appeared in their fall magazine.

I am a regular writer for Socratica‘s astronomy series on YouTube:

I’ve written a couple of posts for TrowelBlazers on Marie Tharp and Inge Lehmann, showcasing awesome female role models in archaeology, palaeontology, and geology.

I wrote a script for a MinuteEarth video about sand that has been viewed almost 2.5 million times!

I recently collaborated with Veritasium to create a video about a huge pet peeve of mine: Earth’s mantle is solid folks, even though it convects!
