Faculty, staff, and students in the UC Davis School of Education
conduct and disseminate leading-edge research on public
education’s most intractable problems. Our research is
grounded in practice, and we work in partnership with complex and
diverse schools and communities, inside and outside classrooms,
to make immediate impact and establish nationally recognized
models of best practices.
We’re excited to welcome Chris
Jadallah to the the Center for Community and Citizen Science this

School of Education, and will be pursuing a PhD in Science and
Agricultural Education. He recently completed his B.S. in
Conservation and Resource Studies at UC Berkeley, where he also
worked as a researcher and project manager studying native bee
conservation. He is interested in exploring the linkages between
environmental education, conservation biology, environmental
studies, and social justice with the ultimate goal of supporting
healthy and empowered communities. Welcome, Chris!
