My research focuses on understanding how citizen science operates within complex social-ecological systems. Specifically, I examine how different models for citizen science influence public understanding of and engagement with natural resources. I am part of an research interdisciplinary research team supporting Snapshot Wisconsin.
Before coming to UW-Madison, I worked as an Associate Lecturer for the University of Wisconsin Colleges where I taught introductory biology. Most recently, I worked for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources as a Research Scientists in the Wildlife and Forestry Research Section.
I hold a Master’s of Science degree in Conservation Biology and Sustainable Development from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Biology and Psychology from Ripon College.
