Outreach

Science communication, community engagement, and collaboration are important parts of being a scientist. Whether it's working in the classroom or discussing my research with the general public, I enjoy sharing my work and expertise with a broader audience.

In & Out of the Classroom

Screen shot of 17 tiles- each one is a person participating in a Zoom meeting
A woman stands on the left side of the image wearing a teal jacket, black pants, and blue facemask. Her arms are extended forward as she gestures towards a group of college students, also wearing facemasks and facing the woman. The students are lined up along a leaf-covered road on the right side of the image. Trees with yellow and green foliage in the background.

I've had the pleasure of giving guest lectures in both classroom and fieldtrip settings. I met with students from the Transitions Program at Poway Unified School District, CA on a recurring basis in 2020 - 2021 to talk about wildlife, wolves, and my experiences studying animals. More recently (fall 2021) I gave several guest lectures in UW's Environmental and Resource Assessment course about using camera traps for wildlife monitoring. I enjoy connecting with students and getting them excited about wildlife research and conservation, even if it means howling like a wolf or crawling on the ground like a carnivore.
