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
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.
In the Media
03/25/2021: The Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife produced a short film about the Washington Predator-Prey Project. The documentary team did a phenomenal job telling the story of this massive collaborative study through breathtaking video footage, camera trap images, short interviews, and mesmerizing graphics.
