I maintain a research blog where I write about physics, machine learning, and related interests: rojefferson.blog.


I would also like to get more involved with EDI outreach, both to counter stereotypes as well as to increase awareness of diversity in academia. Prior to the pandemic, I spoke about being trans/non-binary in science at the I, Scientist 2019 conference in Berlin, the Lise Meitner Society in Tübingen, and the Berlin Museum für Naturkunde's series Diverse Science. Looking forwards, I am especially interested in outreach opportunities to raise visibility for gender minorities, particularly among young (e.g., secondary school) students who may be struggling with similar issues.
