Public Engagement

Academic institutions are NOT doing enough to empower students and academics. I founded After Your PhD as a passion project and website to help people explore careers outside academia. To "evangelize" the opportunities that exist outside academia, I often speak on podcast, panels, and other spaces. I also like to share with others about my current profession to help people explore new careers.
