Associate Research Scientist, UW Wyoming Migration Initiative

I work at the intersection of communication and wildlife biology as a research associate for the Wyoming Migration Initiative (WMI). I develop and produce a wide range of social media content from short videos to detailed illustrations for WMI’s three online platforms (IG: @migrationinitiative Twitter: @wyo_migrations Facebook: @migrationinitiative). I design graphics, banner exhibits, provide editorial and writing support for press releases, articles, etc. In addition, I also provide technical support (GIS and field work coordination) and branding and communication consultations including website design to collaborative groups like the Absaroka Fence Initiative. I am also a budding social scientist, working to understand perspectives of ecological topics like climate change in rural communities as well as the effectiveness of different types of media content.

Favorite scicom project(s) I’ve worked on:

I am also currently exploring the following spaces and am happy to share what I have learned thus far: animations and audio/podcast production.
