I am a science communicator, artist and educator conducting PhD research on native bees at the University of Sydney. I use citizen science to explore the diversity and awareness of pollinators in urban community gardens and bushland.
I’m passionate about accessible, playful, and creative approaches to ecological science that involve active participation of our broader community. I am especially interested in involving young people as co-creators of scientific research, and grounding our inquiry in everyday experiences with our local environment- because we can all BEE Scientists.
I share this passion for urban ecology and pollinators through public education events such as workshops, as well as collaborative art and music. It takes collaboration to cross-pollinate creativity, community and ecology!
