As a scientist benefiting from public funding, I am pleased to engage in science outreach activities, including public lectures, interviews, school visits, and popular science writing.

Some of my recent highlights include writing for the Melbourne University Pursuit magazine, delivering a July Lecture in Physics, and contributing to the Telescopes in School and to the CAASTRO Uluru Astronomer in Residence programs. An example of a talk I recently gave for the program to present current research on the most distant galaxies is available in pdf format.

I am the lead organizer of the Kathmandu Astrophysics School, a mentoring and professional development initiative aimed primarily at astrophysics postgraduate students from Nepal, but open to international students as well. The first edition of the School ("Order of Magnitude Astrophysics") was held at Tribhuvan University (Kathmandu, Nepal) October 24-28, 2016. The second edition was hosted by the Prithvi Narayan Campus (Pokhara, Nepal) June 10-18, 2018, with support from the International Astronomical Union Office of Astronomy for Development, and from the Laby Foundation. The third edition of the Kathamandu Astrophysics School on "Introduction to astronomical observations and data analysis" is a combination of remote learning and residential program in 2021 (TBC).

I am always keen to discuss opportunities to increase public access and awareness in science.
