Title:"The Scale-Invariant Structure of Black Hole Accretion Flows"
I will present evidence for scale-invariant accretion flows in both stellar mass black holes (in X-ray binaries) and supermassive black holes (in active galactic nuclei), based on X-ray observations of ‘changing-look quasars’.
Title:"Anatomy of the Science News Cycle"
I will discuss the structure of the science news cycle through a case study of a recent widely reported science story. In addition, I will lead a discussion regarding best practices for scientists to apply in interactions with journalist to maintain the quality of news coverage their research receives.
