With Dr. Merav Opher I have begun to work with the SHIELD Drive Science Center. This multi-institution collaboration brings together Heliosphere experts from all around the country to collaborate on understanding some of the most fundamental questions in space physics. However, the goals of SHIELD go past just the scientific throughput and also emphasizes the promotion of diversity and inclusion in science, specifically in the field of space physics.


One project we are working on to this effect is an interview series. In this series we give scientists from a diverse set of backgrounds a platform to share their stories. We hope that this allows anyone who wants to be a scientist a role model to that they can relate to. The title of this series is “You can’t be what you can’t see” because we believe that the visibility of under represented groups can have a profound effect on the community as a whole.
