Science Friday

A directing/editing highlight of the year was collaborating with Luke Groskin , Science Friday, and Howard Hughes Medical Institute to produce this short film about how hydrologist Karletta Chief and her colleagues are protecting the waters of the Diné (Navajo) Nation. She not only investigates the impacts of man-made changes to the environment, but regularly shows communities how to monitor water quality for themselves. So much left on the editing room floor, but glad we could share this much of her story!

For Navajo hydrologist Karletta Chief, water is sacred. When a mine spill contaminated a vital river in the Navajo Nation, she decided to investigate the potential environmental and health impacts it had on her community.

How do ants, water molecules, birds (and more) self-organize to create seemingly complex structures or patterns?
Watch my new video, 'What is Emergence?', made with the Quanta Magazine team and animator Lottie Kingslake!

Throughout nature, throngs of relatively simple elements can self-organize into behaviors that seem unexpectedly complex. Scientists are beginning to understand why and how these phenomena emerge without a central organizing entity.

New Video! 🦈 Could a holographic principle within string theory finally link Einstein’s theory of gravity with quantum mechanics? Find out in this second episode of Quanta Magazine's series 'In Theory'.

In the latest campaign to reconcile Einstein’s theory of gravity with quantum mechanics, many physicists are studying how a higher dimensional space that includes gravity arises like a hologram from a lower dimensional particle theory.

A hidden pattern known as Universality is popping up chicken eyes, a bus system in Mexico, atomic nuclei and more. See my latest video for Quanta Magazine!

Our In Theory video series is returning with new visual explorations of big, fundamental questions in science and math. In the first episode of season two, we explore the concept of universality, a surprisingly prevalent statistical distribution that can be found in elements of nature ranging from chicken eyes to atomic nuclei.

Oysters Are Nearly Extinct in New York Waters. Meet the Team Trying to Coax Them Back.

"This is where the project takes an unexpected twist: The four shell beds are made not only of clam and oyster shells but also of tiny pieces of porcelain that have been recycled from nearly 5,000 toilets from New York City’s public schools."

The city’s Environmental Protection Department and the Billion Oyster Project are placing tens thousands of oysters in Jamaica Bay to renew their population.
