The UCS Science Network: Who We Are

The UCS Science Network is a community of more than 17,000 scientists, engineers, economists, public health specialists, and other experts across the country working to educate the public and inform decisions critical to our health, safety, and environment.

August Science Network Spotlight

Miranda Redmond is a PhD student in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department at the University of Colorado – Boulder where she studies the effects of climate and management on vegetation in piñon-juniper woodlands.  She has been actively involved in ecoservice activities for several years, and was awarded the ESA and UCS Ecoservice Award in 2013. As a self-described ecoservice enthusiast, Miranda invites all scientists to hop on the ecoservice train and use their expertise to give back to their communities. When asked why she is such an ecoservice enthusiast, she says, “Because I care deeply about the environment and am passionate about creating a socially just planet. Of course, I view scientific research as an integral component in addressing many looming environmental issues (I am a scientist after all!), but I also feel that another big piece of the puzzle involves raising public awareness of environmental issues and increasing scientific literacy.”
