Kate is the Science Communication Specialist for the Southeast Climate Adaptation Science Center, a current graduate student in the Department of Applied Ecology at NC State, as well as a former Global Change Fellow (2020-2021). As a science communication specialist, Kate performs tasks for the SE CASC such as curating social media posts, newsletters, managing website content, and developing fact sheets and videos about the latest SE CASC work. Kate is currently in her fourth year of her PhD studying the relationship between urban bee diversity, socioeconomic status, and urban habitat quality and has found that science communication skills are pivotal in influencing the impact of her work. She hopes to focus on science communication following the completion of her PhD. Kate has a Bachelor of Science in Fisheries and Wildlife Science from The Ohio State University where she gathered knowledge and skills on a wide range of natural resources management, research, and policy topics as well as how to communicate these topics to various communities and lay audiences. Kate is excited to bring these skills to the SE CASC to support their science communication needs.
