As Artist in Residence at CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory, she explores crossovers in STEM, art, space themes & communication to share the human story of science. She recently appeared on RTE’s ‘The Late Late Show’ to speak about this goal and how her experiences inspire & extend international partnerships in communicating Earth, STEM & space themes and has shared her story about getting to space at prominent events including WIRED Live UK, Space Rocks (ESA), NASA Johnson Space Centre, Inspirefest, New Scientist (UK).
