I also incorporate historic science materials, book arts, photobooks, and ephemera in science undergraduate educational experiences as well as K-12 toward improving overall engagement with STEM. Specific focus on writing in the sciences and communicating science. I also work toward digitizing science materials in the Archives in order to make them available to researchers across the world and the general public.
