Don’t stand in front of the board. Use a laser pointer and stand outside the screen. Your hand waving just gets in the way. Nice presentation, if I did not have to look around you to see the equations and results. You can use a small inset with you, but the physics, mathematics, engineering and real world should not be obscured by the guide, mentor, teacher, collaborator, helper. You did all this and not a single glimpse of the real world. Just your board and your equation, your body hands and face. That is not what the students and collaborators face. You should stand beside them and look at the real phenomena together. Measure, model, calibrate, apply, compare.
