At the Institute for Geophysics (my workplace), we have a tradition of weekly Brown Bag talks and I volunteered to host the seminar this year:The UTIG Brown Bags are informal talks at noon each Wednesday at the Seminar Conference Room and they are a platform for faculty, scientists and students alike to update everyone on their current research and associated research activities (field work, workshops etc.) Though the talks convey scientific results and generate discussion amongst […]
That is all.
Chris Rowan and Anne Jefferson at Highly Allochthonous, inspired by Randall Munroe (of xkcd fame) decided to try and explain their geoscience research using only the 1000 most common English words (find the list here). I think they both did fantastic jobs. Inspired by them, I give it a shot:I study the bodies of small, water-animals that lived in the past (~several hundred years ago) and use them as keys to understand how the water they grew in was like: was it hotter or colder back […]
Generation Anthropocene (or GenAnthro) is a new podcast that a good friend of mine, Michael Osborne, started along with a bunch of other Stanford students about a year ago. I've been meaning to write a post on their fantastic podcast, but alas, time and laziness took their toll. In any case, I've never particularly been 'into' podcasts (though I've been an avid listener of the radio) - especially for science communication and journalism. GenAnthro is a near-perfect amalgamation […]
