Presentations

Kara and I at our poster at LSA 2016I strongly believe that research is meant to be a collaborative endeavor, and findings should be shared with the community in whatever capacity possible. To that end, I've included links to PDFs of talk slides and posters that I and/or my co-authors have presented recently (2010–), at conferences and at other venues.

Presentations prior to 2010 can be requested by email.
