  • Biography

    Dr. Alison Hale has been a QUBES postdoc since January 2015.  Her primary mentor is Sam Donovan at the University of Pittsburgh.  Alison is a population ecologist by training, and received her Ph.D from the University of Pittsburgh for her work on the disruption of native plant-mycorrhizae mutualisms during allelopathic plant invasion.  Other applied ecological interests involve understanding the role of anthropogenic disturbances on aquatic macroinvertebrate community dynamics. Alison’s work with QUBES has included facilitating in-person and online faculty mentoring networks centered around DryadLab, the educational branch of the Dryad ecological data repository; mentoring a team of undergraduate researchers at the University of Pittsburgh; and working with InTeGrate, an NSF-funded program that supports the teaching of geoscience across the undergraduate curriculum, among other projects.  She has also been active in QUBES’ assessment work to evaluate the outcomes of QUBES’ faculty development work.  Alison will soon be starting a position as Project Manager for Science and Research at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.
