Researcher and freelance writer on science and nature Joey Knelman completed his PhD with Diana Nemergut in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and INSTAAR in 2015.

Diana's spirit continues to spark exploration and wonder in the mystery of the natural world through collaborative research projects, including with the Schmidt, Seastedt, Suding, and Graham Labs. Knelman's work has brought him from Northern Norway as a Fulbright grantee to the San Francisco Bay area as a computational biologist postdoc at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. His current experience as a UX Researcher instills his work with a human perspective, drawing on methods including surveys, interviews, and contextual inquiry.
