Emily Schoerning, Ph.D. is NCSE's Director of Community Organizing and Research. Schoerning earned her Ph.D. in microbiology at Arizona State University and then, as a post-doctoral research scholar at the University of Iowa, turned her attention to science education research. In Iowa, she established partnerships to support and improve science education in rural communities. At NCSE, she will be building on that work by spearheading a new initiative that aims to help local communities form and nurture coalitions to support and improve science education.
