Outreach

Malcolm X Shabazz Aquatic Biogeochemistry Team. Karen partners with Andrew Steen (Earth and Planetary Sciences at the University of Tennessee) and Patrick Murray, a math teacher at Malcolm X Shabazz High School in Newark, NJ, to introduce young people to environmental biogeochemistry research. Summer research has taken place at the Poconos Environmental Research Center, and the research has been presented at the American Geophysical Union General Meeting. You can read about the collaboration here.

TED Talk. Karen gave a TED talk about the deep subsurface biosphere in October 2017. 

Biology Meets Subduction short film. CoLab Productions and the Deep Carbon Observatory published a short film about the work in Costa Rica.

NSF Dimensions project: Siberian Permafrost. Collaborator Tatiana Vishnivetskaya made two films (here and here) about her field work in Siberian permafrost.

The Microbial Olympics. Karen wrote a “fun” (depending on your standards) piece for Nature Microbiology during the 2016 Olympics here

Mic/Nite at the University of Tennessee. Karen gave a petcha kutcha style talk (20 seconds per slide, 20 slides) to people who had, thankfully, been drinking beer. Here it is.

15-Second Science. It’s what it sounds like. Literally 15 seconds to say something interesting about one’s research.
