It’s not the time, it’s the people. The popular conception is that scientists at teaching-focused institutions have lower research productivity primarily because they spend so much time teaching. I disagree. Do tenure-track faculty at teaching-intensive…

This seems like a critical tool for building a syllabus – a course workload estimator. Patricia Leary is a law professor who had some “concerned students” protest in writing because she wore a Black Lives Matter shirt. She schooled them, literally, in her…

Some of my favorite museums are ones that usually don't make it to the top of must-do lists. If you find yourself in the vicinity of one of these, you might be in for a treat.

“America’s early aerospace engineers ignored computers because they considered programming to be women’s work.” Can the liberal arts save the sciences? What happens when a husband and wife take the exact same job. The most remote and pristine coral reefs…

Double-blinding increases representation of women & is more fair. Can we do this for grants?

Since double-blind reviews increase fairness and reduce bias, why don't we see double-blind review of grant proposals?

My experiences are leading me to worry that strident attitudes against religion are harming efforts to diversify our scientific communities. Over the past twenty years, I’ve brought down about 120 undergraduates to work with me to the Costa Rican…

Amateurs aren’t experts, but they often have a lot of expertise that we overlook. The ornithological community has been particularly successful at tapping into the community of bird enthusiasts. If I come upon birders, they’re usually blocking the trail…

Double-blind peer reviews are both necessary and feasible.

Which is worse? q. Keeping a grant review process with a bias against women and minority scientists that perpetuates a long history of harmful exclusion and discrimination 2. Working to find a grant review process that uses a double-blind method, so that…

I just got back home from a few weeks of fieldwork in the rainforest. Most of the science I’ve done over the years has been based out of a smallish patch of land in Costa Rica: La Selva Biological Station. It’s a special place. There’s a lot to be said…
