Many of you are engaged in undergraduate research in your classes, and you may be presenting some of that work at the college’s Undergraduate Research Fair and/or at the University of Oregon’s Undergraduate Research Symposium. Many of you are also wonderful fiction writers, painters, photographers, poets, song writers, and other types of writers and artists. It’s time to start publishing your work!
This spring, the Honors Program will publish its first newsletter, and we have an outstanding editor in charge of the project!

“In teaching environmental science I enjoy helping students explore the bioregion surrounding them, partner with campus stakeholders to do scientific research in my classes to help build their identity as a scientist and treat the campus as a living lab. Additionally, I work with students and sustainability groups to incorporate sustainable practices across campus, aligning campus policy/practice to external benchmarks (like the UN SDGs), and promote food security. I began teaching Environmental Science courses at Lane in the Fall of 2019. Prior to that I was an Environmental Science and Chemistry faculty member at Bellevue College, in Bellevue, Washington for 6 years. In my free time I like to be outside whether biking, skiing, hiking, or camping. Additionally, I am an avid gardener and like to grow (and cook) open pollinated vegetables (ask me about the Learning Garden Club).”
