I am responsible for the education and public outreach initiatives at the Harvard Forest. I direct the Fisher Museum, communicate Harvard Forest research findings to the media and the public, oversee university and K-12 programming, fundraise, and serve as liaison to the students and faculty of Harvard University.
I often conduct trainings for scientists and students on science communication. Feel free to browse and borrow my lesson plans!
I also co-chair working groups on ecological communication, education, and art for the Long-Term Ecological Research Network.
I originally came to the Harvard Forest in 2007 as a research assistant, working on the community dynamics of arthropods (spiders, ants, and beetles) in bogs and disturbed forest ecosystems.
