I’m in the process of merging my personal webpage with my blog page! What We Talk About When We Talk About Fire (Talk About Fire) is still here as always–just click on “Talk About Fire Blog.” In the next week I plan to transfer the content of my old website (http://amweill.weebly.com/) to this site.

I was selected as a 2018 AAAS Mass Media Fellow and will be working on science journalism and media production at KQED this summer! If you’ve enjoyed my writing on this blog, stay tuned for my clips on KQED Science!

About:

img_3010I’m a fire ecologist and science communicator. I did my PhD in Ecology at UC Davis and was an AAAS Mass Media Fellow at KQED in 2018. My research focuses on the causes and consequences of changing fire regimes in Mediterranean shrublands for both plants, people, and lichens. I love to write and teach about all kinds of science, but I’m most excited about topics related to wildfire. Other interests include environmental history, paleoecology, and paleobotany.

 

 

 

 

About Talk About Fire Blogimg_3011

My blog focuses on ecological research, science communication, and science education, especially topics related to wildfire. It attempts to present fire science (and sometimes other areas of ecology) in a larger context and discuss the ways we research, talk about, and interact with fire-prone ecosystems.

If you study fire or other topics relevant to the blog and are interested in writing a guest post, please send an e-mail to amweill@ucdavis.edu.
