Adrienne Strubb is a PhD student in Forest Resources at University of Minnesota. She holds a BS in Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences and a BA in French from Oregon State University. She completed her MA in International Environmental Policy from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterey, California in 2011. Her broader interests have been to understand how science is selected and filtered by individuals and organizations for application. Drawing from information-seeking literature, Adrienne explores the capacity for scientific knowledge transfer in agencies that govern complex and changing environments. Her dissertation looks to understand the relationships between institutional incentives and barriers and individual motivation to seek innovative science over “tried and true” methods.
