Story
Tagline
Physicist, science writer, hat man
Introduction
I’m a physicist, science writer, public speaker, educator, and frequent wearer of jaunty hats. My writing and speaking specialties are cosmology, astronomy, and many other topics in physics, all aimed at non-specialist audiences. I have appeared in comics form as Pluto’s moon Nix. I’m currently writing a book on cosmology, with working title Back Roads, Dark Skies: A Cosmological Journey.
