You can now watch my @TEDxMileHigh talk online. I'd love to know what you think! There are so many facets of this topic I didn't get to cover due to the platform, but I am always game to discuss the real complexities of this work. piped.kavin.rocks/watch?v=wPA-p6UU…

Is it safe to gather indoors right now? No. BUT is it safe to spend time outdoors right now?? Also no.
Denver’s air quality is currently the worst in the world among major cities, via @IQAir. #9wx #COwx

If someone says it on Twitter it must be true! I feel like I just joined the faculty yesterday, and also one million years ago?? What a fantastic, frightening, heart-opening, mind-blowing ride.
Congrats, @ShannonSliva, on your promotion to Associate Professor with TENURE! Well-earned and very exciting. @GSSWDenver is lucky to have you.

I love this question and topic! It's so important that @summermillwood and a new generation of psychological scientists are thinking about how to share findings! A few tips from my team's experiences: /1 🧵
what are your top tips for new researchers to communicate findings to the general public (e.g., blog posts?) obviously twitter is great, but I think it still gets "trapped" in our field/academic twitter. all advice/tips welcome!

On Feb. 24, I co-moderated a beautiful panel w/ @ShannonSliva called "Journeys to Abolition" & the recording is below. Because "the very systems we are working to dismantle live inside of us," this gathering is an offering to help with that internal work. bit.ly/3utBHhk

In your fight against oppression never lose the ability to engage complexity and humanity - particularly among those who are in the fight with you.

My dad not only sends Valentine’s Day cards, he knows how important it is to cite women. ❤️ (Also no my mom probably did not invent the saying “love you to the moon and back”)
