The 'Physics on the Road' project will involve some traditional K-12 outreach efforts, but also aims to spread the excitement of her research to the general public through a public lecture series she is calling 'Coffee Shop Astrophysics'. The idea behind the lecture series is to create an informal environment at a local coffee house where anyone interested can learn about gravitational wave physics and astrophysics. The lectures themselves will be more informal than a traditional seminar talk, and will use audience involvement, visual aids and humor to make the science as accessible as possible.
