Title & Affiliation:
Research Specialist - Rainforest, Biosphere 2, University of Arizona
My primary role as Research Specialist at Biosphere 2 is to support and facilitate the activities of the researchers. I accomplish this by ensuring that the rainforest is in optimal conditions for research. This involves monitoring the conditions inside the rainforest, keeping the plants healthy, and maintaining the arrays of sensors that provide data. I also provide any needed assistance in research campaigns that are being conducted at Biosphere 2, such as WALD.
