Bio:

University of Utah, STEM Ambassador Program

I am the Program Manager for the STEM Ambassador Program where I guide scientists in carrying out engagement activities outside traditional science learning settings, in venues such as correctional facilities, senior centers, and cafes, to increase public access to science.

Project Description

Title: A field review to understand how scientists communicate about their public engagement activities

Goal: We will review published literature and reports to determine if and how ecologists participate in dialogues with public audience about their work, and identify emerging trends in public engagement by ecologists.

Aspirations for Impact: This work will offer insight into the prevalence of public engagement practices and outcomes in ecological literature and reports, and will provide guidance for documenting public engagement in other scientific disciplines.
