My aim is to promote youth agency in science for environmental and social justice. I investigate youth participation in authentic science research, called community and citizen science. My research focuses on youth agency with data, such as how youth ensure accurate data collection, view their data as consequential, use their data for environmental decision-making and leverage their data to advocate for the change they wish to see in their local communities.
