PRESENTATIONS

 

I frequently give talks in an effort to communicate novel scientific findings and demonstrate how field work is conducted in harsh, remote locations. My work is extremely visual and rich in dynamic content, which lends itself to oral presentations. The talks below range from professional conferences to elementary school assemblies.

Invitations for presentations should be directed to me at jdickson@brown.edu
