New blog post: How I Changed My Stars... the story of how I got a job as a designer at the American Museum of Natural History. From my experiences at the College of William and Mary to my adventures in New York City, here's my unabridged backstory, spanning 18 years!

Something warm on a cold day, brought to you by The Sun and the sleepy town of Östersund, Sweden. #auroraborealis

The Museum isn't as scary as my friend Ryan suggests, especially if I'm around to show you around (read: free). Then again, science learning is valuable at any price! #TRexiswatchingyou

My colleagues here at the American Museum of Natural History are hosting a really fascinating Google Hangout today - jump in and check it out!
Last September, sea ice in the Arctic Ocean shrank to its smallest extent on record. This frozen cover is also dramatically younger and thinner than it used to be. How does the satellite record reveal these changes? And what are the effects of sea ice loss both near and far?
 
Explore these issues and questions with experts on sea ice monitoring, polar science, and data visualization at a live Google Hangout on Air on Tuesday, April 9 from 4–5 PM EST, hosted by the American Museum of Natural History’s Science Bulletins program and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
 
The Hangout will highlight a new data visualization, designed for informal education at museums and science centers, about the recent, radical trends in Arctic sea ice. The visualization’s datasets will also be made available for live programming on NOAA’s Science on a Sphere (SOS)® spherical display system. The panel will also address ways to interpret the visualization for museum and educational audiences.
 
The Hangout will feature:

Dr. Ned Gardiner, data visualization specialist with the NOAA Climate Program Office
Dr. Mark Tschudi, Research Associate at the Colorado Center for Astrodynamics Research at the University of Colorado–Boulder
Dr. Karen Frey, Assistant Professor of Geography at Clark University
