Education & Outreach

I co-developed & co-maintain a Conservation Tech Directory with Gracie Ermi (Allen Institute for AI). The site contains a list of organizations, companies, networks, opportunities & resources in conservation technology and aims to serve as a centralized source of information in this space. There is also a static version of the directory archived on Figshare. If you know of a resource that should be in the directory but is not yet, you can fill out this Google Form and we will add it in our next update (~once a month).

From 2018-2021, I was a doctoral fellow in the CUNY Graduate Center’s Office of Career┬áPlanning and Professional Development (CP&PD), where I planned and developed STEM-specific workshops, alumni panels, and career resources for GC students in the sciences. In the office, I planned events and created resources specifically for STEM students that explored both academic and non-academic career paths in the sciences. I co-managed our office’s alumni podcast, Alumni Aloud, and curated the STEM-specific online portal I remain enthusiastic about finding unique career paths outside of academia for PhD and MS students to pursue and continue to enjoy working with Graduate Center students to advance their professional and career goals.

I am a regular participant in Skype a Scientist and maintain a robust social media presence on LinkedIn and Twitter. I have previously been an instructor for the Duke Lemur Center’s TIP Field Course, where I taught 24 high-school students. I created the curriculum, which covered animal behavior, lemur biology, observational field methods, and data visualization. I also oversaw 2 teaching assistants, who were vital in facilitating the students’ group projects. I’ve also been a teaching assistant for introductory biological anthropology courses at Central Washington University.
