Cool Davis welcomes Annie Merritt! Annie is an environmental outreach writing intern at Cool Davis, as an undergraduate at UC Davis majoring in Environmental Science and Management with a focus on Natural Resource Management and minoring in Professional Writing.

Annie interned at the Center for Spatial Technologies and Remote Sensing (CSTARS) at UC Davis previously, where she was involved in a research project assessing the effectiveness of current prescribed burning and thinning methods in increasing forest resistance to drought.

In the summers of 2015 and 2016, Annie participated in fieldwork for research projects studying drought impacts on Sierra Nevada forests, experiences that inspired her interest in forest ecology, drought, and the broader impacts of climate change.

In her free time, Annie enjoys running, reading, playing pick-up soccer, and hiking and camping.

Annie will be working on the Climate Impacts and Environmental Scorecard content currently being developed for our website. Check out Annie’s first article!
