Alexandria PooleI am pursuing a MS in Environmental Science and a PhD in Philosophy of the Environment. I am pursuing both of these programs concurrently because I want to look at the cultural and ecological aspects involved in conservation issues. In order to address the loss of cultural and biological diversity, I am looking at ecology within and of the city – treating those living in the urban context as part of an ecosystem. I hope to integrate the biocultural approach into urban ecology, legitimizing the use of biological and cultural studies as a scientific approach to conservation. Towards this end, I have been working as a research assistant in the Sub-Antarctic Biocultural Conservation Program housed by the University of North Texas and the Universidad de Magallanes, Chile. This approach to biocultural conservation is complemented by my work as an intern in the Baltimore Ecosystem Study of Baltimore, Maryland, an urban long-term ecological research site, where I can focus my questions within an urban context. Additionally, my work is looking to overcome academic boundaries by participating in policy, education and outreach.
