Science as Leisure

Liz Marchio

I am a trained ichthyologist interested in what gets people interested in natural history, biological sciences, and science careers. My passion is to find out what fuels curiosity for the natural world.

Biology-related serious leisure activities can impact people's interest in ecology, biology, and natural history. Do these activities promote biological understanding? If so, how does that progress and to what level does it progress to? 

If you're interested in a starting a dialogue, please feel free to contact me. If you're curious about how I got here, my story can be found on the About Me page.

Albuquerque, New Mexico

A bittersweet experience. All the amazingly focused and productive people I have met through the last 2-3 years are here and it is sad to think I may not be coming back. I plan to bridge that gap, somehow! 

More to come...
