I serve as a Marine Education Specialist for the Alaska Center for Ocean Science Education Excellence (COSEE). COSEEs are a national initiative funded by the National Science Foundation—the Alaska COSEE is one of twelve such centers nationwide.

I am working to link scientists, educators, and coastal communities in Alaska who are involved in outreach and education about ocean climate change. The Alaska COSEE is unique among the COSEE network in its emphasis on weaving together Western science and traditional knowledge about climate change and sharing this perspective nationally. A portion of my time is also spent working with the MAP agents throughout Alaska to provide them with tools and resources to aid communication between scientists, local educators, and community members.
