Science Communications Specialist
Southeast Climate Adaptation Science Center
Ashlyn has a background in climate science communication, GIS, and environmental science. She recently graduated from the Climate Change and Society Master’s program at NC State and also earned a Geographic Information Systems Certificate. Her undergraduate studies in Psychology and Environmental Science provided her with a unique background for this graduate program that connects climate science to the broader community. During her master’s, she worked on a team to propose an update to the education and outreach initiative of the NC State University Climate Action Plan. She hopes to use this experience, along with the skills that she has gained at the SE CASC, to fulfill her research interests of exploring the role that an effective climate change communication and education campaign may play in reshaping an individual’s actions, especially at the middle school level.
