Upcoming Speaking Engagements

Here is the list of speaking engagements I have scheduled for the next six-month. All events, except where noted otherwise, are open to all members of the public. University students must follow their guidelines regarding access to campus during the Covid pandemic. These rules are subject to change and can vary over time. For more information, contact the school directly. You should be aware that some events in person may have to change or cancel depending on the severity of the pandemic. If that occurs, I’ll update the post. The events seem to be moving forward, although I’m cautiously optimistic. It’s difficult to predict the future at this point.

This post will be updated with additional information and events as they become available. As an interim, if you’d like me to give a talk (either in person or virtually) about any topic of my expertise to your university, research center, or similar institution, I’m open to it! My website gives you a glimpse of what I have to say and write about.
