Physical Review Letters, Vol. 112, Issue 11, id. 110405, March 18 2014 (arXiv:1310.3288) (DOI)

I was selected to participate in the UC Santa Cruz Institute for the Philosophy of Cosmology, a 3-week summer workshop sponsored by the Rutgers Templeton Project in the Philosophy of Cosmology. Lecture videos are online under the “Program” link (Jun 23-July 14, 2013)
I served as a Science Consultant for NOVA, The Nature of Reality, the physics blog of the PBS television station, WGBH Boston. I worked with NOVA's Greg Kestin, consulting on the text for the narration of the video he created, “What is Gravity Made Of?”, which discusses the discovery of gravity waves from the early universe inflationary epoch by the BICEP2 experiment in Antarctica.
I served as a Science Consultant for the FX television series "Wilfred", starring Elijah Wood. In Wilfred Season 3, Episode 10, "Distance" (Aug 15, 2013), Elijah's character, Ryan, needed to investigate wormholes and time machines for some reason. I was asked to write some text for and mock up this hypothetical website about wormholes. They used parts of my text, made their own images, and here is a photographed screenshot of what actually aired. For more details, see here.
