An Environmental Sciences Ph.D.’s Career Path in Research, Conservation, Education, and Public Policy

Tuesday, November 7, 2017
12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Dr. Hilary Swain has crafted a career that combines ecological research, conservation, and education. As the Executive Director and a Senior Research Biologist at Archbold Biological Station, Dr. Hilary Swain leads management of remnant and restored Florida scrub and a large cattle ranch. She also connects local people, government agencies, ranchers, national scientific organizations, and nonprofits, who, together with her own research, improve conservation and water quality improvement efforts throughout the Northern Everglades, and beyond. You can hear more about Dr. Swain’s career in her own words in this video, or view her bio and CV on Archbold’s website. Join us for this limited-enrollment lunch for informal conversation with Dr. Swain.

This event is part of The Graduate School’s Professional Development Series and is co-sponsored by the University Program in Ecology, the Office of Postdoctoral Services, and Women in Science and Engineering.
