Biography

Leah Gregg joined the ACRC in January 2019. Prior to that, she worked as a travel coordinator for the Arts & Sciences department at UAS for three years. She received her MA in History from the University of Glasgow in 2015 and her BLA in History and English from the University of Alaska Southeast in 2013.

Biography

Emily Whitney joined the ACRC in September 2016. She has an MS in fisheries from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where she examined food webs in glacially-influenced estuaries in Southeast Alaska. Since then, her work has taken her upstream and she now works on projects focused on the biogeochemistry of Southeast Alaska streams and how these systems may respond in response to changes in the watershed. She is frequently in the field collecting water samples or back in the lab processing samples.

Emily enjoys getting out on the trails in Juneau along with her beagle (who you may hear before seeing).

Molly Tankersley

http://acrc.alaska.edu/

Biography

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.
