Tara Cornelisse – GK-12 Fellow 2010-11

Tara Cornelisse

My dissertation work focuses on promoting science in policy by tying in habitat quality and population dynamics to further the efficacy of endangered species recovery by using the endangered Ohlone tiger beetle as a model.

During my final year in SCWIBLES, I applied my experience and knowledge to more environmental and conservation oriented lessons that integrated my research expertise and interests. Specifically, I brought science to the classroom in the form of real world conservation problems; from endangered species and habitat loss, to global warming and zero waste. I know that I will continue to learn a lot from this experience and will come out a better scientist, educator, conservationist, and citizen.
