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.


My Metamorphosis; a short story

This week I was extremely lucky to get the opportunity to publish an essay in Science. This isn't a research paper, it's a career story. It's how I got into the field of science and am where I am today. Check it out and let me know what you think via Twitter! @LizMarchio
