Virtual seminar series!

I can help you set up and/or manage a virtual seminar series for your department, agency, or non-profit.

Virtual conference/symposium management. If you have a small to medium sized conference or symposium that you’re hoping to make virtual, and you’re shocked at how expensive the available options are for large event conference management, let’s chat!

Communications strategy for a new paper, report, or campaign. Make sure your information and your experts reach the biggest audience possible and make sure the message is crafted properly! I can help with overall strategy, press releases, op-eds, how to find appropriate journalists, etc.

Experimental design, project planning, statistical analysis, and scientific writeup! Make sure your new scientific research project is set up to succeed, or turn a completed project into a peer-reviewed scientific paper!
