After finishing my PhD, I was awarded the AAAS-AMS Mass Media Fellow at National Public Radio where I learned about communicating science ideas to the general public. I'm interested in the role that mathematicians, data scientists, and journalists play in responsible reporting in our technological world.


In collaboration with the Tufts University Art Galleries, we developed an AI curatorial assistant which was featured in the Spring 2024 exhibit Visualizing Collections: Data-Driven Approaches to Anti-Bias Curating. This project was discussed in The Edit, in a recent article "Women Are Something to See." We also made an animated video explaining the AI curatorial process.


I am director emeritus of the Small Town Police Accountability (SToPA) Research Lab. We are a group of academics and activists who work together on computational tools to bring accountability to small town policing. Our work was featured on the podcast Carry the Two


My collaborative work on offshore wind was funded by the National Science Foundation. You can read more about our work and our amazing team in this article from the Tufts Daily.
In February 2022 I co-organized the Tufts Art Datathon. The event was featured in Tufts Now, "Hacking for Diversity and Representation."


In September 2021 I moderated A Conversation with the New York Times featuring a presentation and Q&A with members of the New York Times COVID-19 Tracker team featuring Tiff Fehr, Rich Harris, Albert Sun and Lisa Waananen Jones. A video of the event is available here.


I was a co-editor of the AMS Blog on Math Blogs with Evelyn Lamb from Feb. 2015 through Aug. 2019.


In June 2017 I was a guest on As It Happens on CBC Radio One, to talk about a Connecticut deli where math talk is forbidden.
In March 2017 I was a guest on Press Play with Madeleine Brand on KCRW, the NPR station out of Santa Monica, CA, to talk about pi day and our national obsession with pi(e).


I co-hosted the podcast The Other Half with my best friend Annie Rorem. We explore the other half of math, the fun half that you can use to understand your everyday life, and we do so as women -- the other half of people!
In May 2016 I was a guest on Essential Pittsburgh on WESA, Pittsburgh’s NPR News Station, to talk about the release of the L-Functions and Modular Forms Database (LMFDB). There is also a whole bunch of other media about the LMFDB.


In 2014 and 2015 I co-edited the Joint Math Meetings Blog, hosted by the AMS. The blog covered daily events at the JMM and highlighted keynote address and special sessions of interest.


Throughout my fellowship at National Public Radio I wrote stories about math and science for the NPR blogs, and contributed to a few on-air radio pieces; here is a link to my work at NPR.
I wrote semi-monthly posts for the AMS Math Digest, highlighting the coverage of mathematicians and their research in the mainstream media.
