Presentations

A partial list of both formal and informal presentations are below (bold are in MESAS research group).  Email Brian Magi for more information about any presentation below. Part of my role as a scientist involves technical presentations, but I am happy to help with public outreach efforts related to the science of global warming (see my presentations in support of GLOBE in 2012, multiple press releases related to climate change science in the Charlotte area, my CCRC talk in 2014, and talks in fall 2015, for example). Also note that my information is on the Climate Voices site at this link. Please email me with any questions.
