Arthur A. Allen Director
November 22, 2016
Arthur A. Allen, a legendary Cornell professor, researcher, explorer and the founding director of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, was committed to involving the public in science and promoting the study of birds far and wide. It is appropriate, therefore, that the Director of Citizen Science position at the Cornell Lab is named for Arthur Allen. I was honored and humbled to be named the Arthur A. Allen Director of Citizen Science in November 2016 and look forward to continuing Doc Allen’s tradition of meaningful public engagement and outreach. Special thanks to my colleagues at the Lab, the remarkably talented and hard-working Citizen Science team, and a talented cohort of students who are always supportive.
