“One of my main goals through my research is learning how to effectively communicate scientific messages to the public and have them understand what it means for a statement to be supported by evidence and science. I want people to make these connections, rather than hearing a quote on the news about the environment and think that it doesn’t affect them. There are small things that everyone can do on a daily basis that actually make a difference. That’s why outreach and education is so important to me. Your decisions every day impact animals, the environment, and other individuals.”
