Emily Haberlack is a third-year student at Iowa State University studying Environmental Science, Environmental Studies, and Sociology. She has been involved in science communication on campus for two years creating a literature review of quantitative experiments using empathy as an intervention to change behavior in environmental, health, and risk fields. Her particular research interest is the diffusion of innovations relating to science and risk communication. After graduation, Emily is hoping to pursue a PhD in sociology or in sustainable rural livelihoods.
Her internship experience includes working as an interpretive naturalist intern at the World of Birds Show at the Minnesota Zoo and working on a permaculture farm in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand.
On campus she is an Undergraduate Research Ambassador and member of Alpha Gamma Delta, Rho Chapter.
Outside of classes she enjoys running, yoga, and spending time at the local conservatory (especially in the winter).
