I’ve spoken about astronomy at various events. In terms of outreach, I’ve talked with primary and secondary school students. I’ve also spoken about my research at academic conferences. Some of the material I presented is available below. Note that most presentations contain lots of video clips and animations but these do not feature here as I’ve included the material in PDF format.
