I am a researcher and practitioner focused on public engagement in science, including designing and assessing citizen science, examining impacts on scientists, and supporting informal science educators.

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
