Interest in public philosophy? Please be as SPECIFIC AS YOU CAN. Members who answer "yes" or "a lot" will not be approved.
I am currently working on a project connecting astro-biology and the search for extra-terrestrial life with public opinion, reaction and policy. Topics range from the evolution and origin of life on Earth to the possibility of communication with intelligent life outside of this planet. I am interested in responses from a variety of disciplines; let's have a conversation!
I also research the vocalizations of top and middle-food-chain (non-human) predators (including dolphins and coyotes) and how these vocalizations change in response to urban life. Communication with non-human life forms on Earth can help us understand non-human forms of communication that might emerge from space.
