Dr. Talucci enjoys spending time outside and is an enthusiastic outdoor educator. She has spent approximately 90 weeks combined in the field observing landscapes in transition—especially alpine and subalpine ecosystems. She has seen glaciers shrink and fire-scarred landscapes recover, and watched trees die from insect attacks. The time she’s spent in transformed ecosystems has motivated her to study the ecological impacts of climate change.
In her free time, Dr. Talucci enjoys hiking, biking, running, and paddling, as well as spending time with her dog, a black lab.
