Speaking gigs

I am available to speak on multiple topics of expertise, either in person or via Skype or other e-means. Reach me through the Contact page. Topics:

  • Title IX in history and today
  • Plug-in electric vehicles
  • Earthquake preparedness

My favorite appearances so far have been at Google headquarters, at colleges including the University of California, Berkeley and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and at Sierra Club national headquarters. Here’s a video example of me speaking at the wonderful Book Passage bookstore.
