This week, Science Education and Research director Dr. Emily Kalnicky was featured in the Pittsburgh Tribune Review! Emily spoke about the importance of connecting people and nature and her passion for research.  In addition to her biography, the article also outlined her vision for the future of research at Phipps:

“Her biggest project, though, is creating an open-ended, multiphase Biophilia Institute, where scientists from Phipps, the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University and other institutions will conduct ecology-based research, and members of the public can attend workshops, hear speakers and otherwise engage with scientists. Biophilia means a love for nature, and the institute will explore this human-nature relationship with four points of focus: education and social justice, human health and wellness, ecological health and wellness, and communication and outreach.”

We are so excited to help Emily make this vision as reality as we move forward. Join us in congratulating Emily on her interview!
