Alex Lewis, Wildlife Biologist, ADF&G

Alex is a wildlife biologist with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in Douglas. She recently completed her MS in Wildlife Sciences from Auburn University where she worked on the ecology and management of wild pigs and worked as a writing consultant for the university’s writing center. Alex has led several workshops focused on written communication. She currently works on wolf research in Southeast Alaska and hopes to continue in wildlife research and integrating science communication into her work.

You can follow Alex on Twitter or visit her website.

Tessa Hasbrouck, Assistant Management Biologist, ADF&G

Tessa Hasbrouck is a wildlife management biologist at the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in Ketchikan. She spends her workdays straddling the disciplines of science and communication, and pondering why her undergraduate program decided it was more important to teach her the scientific name for damselfly than to teach her how to explain complicated statistical methods in a simple way. Although not a master communicator, Tessa has found opportunity outside of the school system to learn and practice communication skills, and she hopes to share some of her findings with you.
