University of Utah, School of Biological Sciences I am a forest ecologist and science communicator, and direct the STEM Ambassador Program and other projects to bring science to non-traditional public groups.
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.
