Upcoming Speaking Engagements [Updated and Reposted]

NOTE: The list was republished because of many updates, including several additions and two postponements of events until the 2022/23 academic year.

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. However, university students are bound by their campus access rules during the Covid pandemic. These rules are subject to change and can vary over time. For more information, contact the school directly. Some in-person events could be moved online depending on how the pandemic develops. If that occurs, I’ll update the post. The events seem to be moving forward, although I’m cautiously optimistic. However, it is difficult at the moment to be certain.

Over time, I’ll add more events to the post. If you are interested in having me speak on any subject within my area of expertise at your university or research institute, please let me know. Visit my website to see a list of topics I’ve written and spoken about.
