Ms. Anneka Williams communicates Woodwell’s climate science by writing articles for our print and web channels. Her work is motivated by her belief in the power of community-oriented science and the ways that science can be communicated to broad audiences through different modes of storytelling. She particularly enjoys learning about polar and high alpine environments, whose organisms and climate systems display both incredible fragility and resilience in the face of climate change.
Ms. Williams will graduate from Bowdoin College in May 2021 and plans to conduct research on climate change in polar and high alpine ecosystems. She hopes this research will inform environmental policy, engage local stakeholders, and fuel compelling science stories. In her free time, she enjoys long-distance running, woodworking, and backcountry skiing.
