Podcasts, newspapers, and documentaries – oh my!
I’m not joking when I say I can talk about beavers all day. And luckily for me, a lot of people like to hear about them! I’ve had the pleasure of working with a variety of journalist and media outlets over the years, and some of the recent highlights are featured below.
You can find a full list of my research’s media coverage in my CV.
