Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University
Margaret Kosmala is the co-creator of the citizen science websites Snapshot Serengeti and Season Spotter. She earned her BS in computer science and her PhD in ecology, and loves putting the two together to do participatory science with non-professionals. Her research focuses on the dynamics of communities of plant and animals species over time, and the impact humans have on these dynamics. She is also a guest writer for the Dynamic Ecology blog, where she advocates for better policies to support women and new parents within the academic system. She is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University.
