As a crusader against bullet points and an evangelist for effective slide design, I specialize in the Assertion-Evidence presentation approach. I am passionate about helping scientists and engineers give outstanding presentations because science not communicated is science not done. The future health, happiness, and safety of our world depends on the innovations of scientists and engineers and I want to help them tell the story of their work. I believe that well crafted presentations can be a catalyst for change.

Courses I teach:

CAS 100A: Effective Speech for Engineers

ENGR 397A: Advanced Engineering Communication
