Six years ago, I moved to Northern California to study fire, and I’ve been exploring California ecosystems ever since. My dissertation research has been about wildfire in California shrublands, and I try to figure out how plants, people, and other living things survive and thrive in flammable places. Along the way, I’ve spent a lot of time talking with kids, college students, and adults about plants, fire, the scientific process, and exploring our home environments, through school-based outreach, camps, citizen science, and conversations with people I meet while working in nature. I also write about wildfire and related topics on my blog, talkaboutfire.com. I’m thrilled to join KQED this summer and bring science stories to my community here in Northern California and beyond.
