Scientific Engagement at Antioch College

April 24, 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm EDT

Free

Experiential learning is a core value of Antioch College and a strong emphasis in the sciences program. We offer small class sizes and individualized mentorship with faculty who teach all of our classes. Students pursue their own interests in the sciences as they design their own majors. Faculty in the Science Division also collaborate with students on research projects. Our renowned Cooperative Education program provides students with multiple opportunities to explore professional scientific experiences. We prepare students for a wide variety of post-graduation opportunities, such as employment, graduate and professional schools.

Kim Landsbergen

Kim Landsbergen is an ecologist who uses physiological and biogeochemical methods to study carbon and water dynamics in terrestrial systems, usually in the context of climate change, invasive plants, urban ecosystems, and land management. Prof. Landsbergen is a certified senior ecologist with the Ecological Society of America and owner of CarbonEcology Consulting. She has published more than 20 peer-reviewed ecology papers in scientific journals. She also holds an appointment as Visiting Research Scholar with Ohio State University’s Department of Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology. Kim joins the faculty most recently from the Columbus College of Art and Design, where she was an ‘embedded professor of science’. There she taught courses with themes in ecology, biomimicry, sustainable design, and infographics—the visual communication of scientific information. Previously, she taught at Ohio University in the Environmental and Plant Biology and Environmental Science programs. Community engaged practice from an ecological perspective can take many forms.

David Kammler

David Kammler is interested in a wide variety of activities, disciplines, and modes of inquiry, especially: astronomy and space exploration, biochemistry, chemistry, cooking, gardening, history, philosophy, running, soccer, and teaching. Dr. Kammler began to focus on chemistry and biochemistry in college, and graduated from Harvard University in 1994 with an AB, Cum Laude, in Chemistry. During this time Dr. Kammler fell in love with teaching and the interdisciplinary modes of inquiry found within liberal arts colleges. Dr. Kammler is a third-generation Eagle Scout, has written, received, and reviewed scientific grants and patents, has received three distinguished teaching awards since his teaching career began in 1992, and is most assuredly a foodie.
