Winter Storm workshop

For two years I also led the organization of the annual Winter Storm graduate training workshop, designing a two-week graduate training curriculum targeting key research skills, professional development, and interdisciplinary collaboration.

During one of these workshops I led a two-week morning session on science communication.
