A Moment of Science

Kim Elsenbroek

I am a second year PhD student studying Biology and minoring in Journalism. I received my B.S. in Botany from Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIUC) in spring of 2012. I have conducted research in sustainability, ecological restoration, invasive species control and outreach/education. I have worked with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, McHenry County Conservations District, SIUC and now IUB. I also dance and perform with the African American Dance Company. Career wise, I aspire to communicate science to the general public and guide landowners and managers on the restoration of degraded lands.
