Megan Robinson Field Ecologist

1. I have degree in Conservation Biology and Ecology and wish to further my education as a PhD candidate in Biology spring of 2021.
2. Since graduation, I have been living and working in Zambia, Africa, as a field ecologist.
3. I have experience as a TA and a tutor while I was in college and loved it.
4. I am a passionate and patient instructor with a personal understanding of students navigating ADHD, ADD, and dyslexia.
5. I am willing to help students that are motivated to learn and be successful in the subject.
6. I was a scholarship athlete in college and therefore understand the additional demands on the student’s time outside of academics.
7. My goal for every student is to gain extensive subject matter comprehension, as well as, share my passion for it. I myself struggled in biology in high school and understand the frustration that accompanies that. I am here to install confidence in your ability to be successful in the classroom, broaden your study techniques, and develop habitats that will carry on to further courses.

Experience

  • Field Ecologist and Data Manager (May, 2019 - Present) at Zambian Carnivore Programme
    The Zambian Carnivore Programme (ZCP) is a Zambian-registered non-profit organization dedicated to conserving large carnivores and the ecosystems they reside in through a combination of conservation science, conservation actions, and a comprehensive education and capacity-building effort. My job includes managing all data that is collected in my site as well as going out in the field to collect data.
  • Teaching Assistant (TA) (Aug, 2018 - Jan, 2019) at Montana State University
    As a TA in soils (Earth Science), my responsibilities included supervising laboratory activities for a specific soil course as well as outdoor classes. My job was to maintain a safe, instructive atmosphere in the laboratory at all times as well as assign and grade labs/papers from students.
  • Field Researcher (Feb, 2017 - May, 2019) at United States Geological Survey
    Most of my experience in the field working for the USGS as well as creating and working through my own research project. During the summers I spent the majority of my time out in the field and working on my manuscript to save time and work for myself in my heavy fall semester. My work mostly focused on the occupancy rates on the American Pika (a small mammal) in relation to elevation gradients and raising atmospheric temperature in montane ecosystems. I spent 4 to 5 days at a time in the backcountry backpacking and camping by myself while at each mountain range within the study. By the end of my first season of this research I felt extremely confident in my ability to go out on my own and handle any situation that could have arose while out in the field.
  • Independent Researcher (Feb, 2017 - May, 2019) at Montana State University
    As an independent researcher I developed and funded my own project on the distribution of American Pika in relation to climate change. I presented at undergraduate research conferences as well as developed a senior thesis around my project.
  • Data Analysis (Jan, 2017 - May, 2019) at Montana State University
    My job included data entry and participation in reviewing peer reviewed articles.
