Molly Tankersley joined ACRC as a science communications specialist in 2018. She works with scientists at ACRC and the Alaska Climate Adaptation Science Center to share the outcomes of their work and the importance of actionable science with a variety of audiences. She seeks to tell engaging stories about ongoing research at AK CASC and ACRC armed with a camera, a healthy avoidance of jargon, and no shame in asking the stupid questions. With a background in environmental science, she has experience using science writing, web design, photography, and graphic design to communicate about research and natural resources at non-profits, research centers, and the National Park Service. Off duty, she's hiking, running, or biking in a fruitless attempt to tire out a rambunctious blue heeler puppy.
