Background and expertise

Birch Malotky is a Research Scientist and Emerging Issues Initiative Coordinator at the Ruckelshaus Institute. In addition to coordinating activities and stakeholder engagement around emerging natural resource issues in the state of Wyoming, she also writes, edits, produces and publishes a range of science communication materials for the Haub School. These include contributions to Western Confluence, an annual publication from the Ruckelshaus Institute covering science-based and collaborative approaches to natural resource problem solving in the West.

Her graduate work at the University of Wyoming explores how people interact with and conceptualize their environment, particularly in the context of emotional, economic, and physical displacement driven by climate change. This continues and expands upon her work as a freelance journalist writing about science, conservation, and recreation. Before joining the Haub School, she worked as a volunteer and stewardship coordinator for The Nature Conservancy in New Hampshire, and as an environmental educator in Colorado. As an undergraduate, she studied species’ responses to climate change in national and state parks and worked as a field technician for a number of different labs in Montana and Rhode Island.
