Hi there! My name's Joseph. I live in greater Boston (with a ragdoll kitten and a climate scientist), where I do science, science communication, and the science of science communication. I love to learn about and listen to new things, and to meet new people, so don't hesitate to reach out (firstname.lastname@the google e-mail service).
I also labor in the wide, exciting world of audiovisual, print, and experential educational media, including as:
- a director/trustee of the Telluride Association, and the Sand Mountain Cooperative Education Center;
- Executive Director of the the Sound Education conference for educational podcasters and listeners;

- an Associate Editor at the MIT-Harvard Science Policy Review;
- a fact-checker for Pushkin Industries, including for the Happiness Lab with Laurie Santos, and Cautionary Tales with Tim Harford;

I used to live in Ithaca at the Telluride House, right down the hill from the College of Arts & Sciences at Cornell University, where I got my B.A. (summa cum laude) in 2017, having:
- majored in cognitive science as a College Scholar, studying and researching as a Dean's Scholar, Rawlings Scholar, and inaugural Phi Beta Kappa Scholar;
