Meet the Team
I'm the Manager of Public and Youth Engagement here at the Peabody Museum, where I supervise events, camps, volunteers, and most importantly, EVOLUTIONS! I have a B.A. in Biology and Psychology, M.A. in Science Education, PhD in Social Foundations of Education, and have worked with science museum youth programs for, well just say a long time. I like science, teaching about social and environmental justice, playing with my dogs, and binge watching sci-fi shows on Netflix, but my favorite thing to do is work with all of the outstanding students in EVO. These are truly some of the most talented and inspiring young adults I have ever met. The Peabody Museum is a great place to learn about lots of different topics, and even at my age, I still learn new things every day.
I’m Alana and I am the program coordinator for EVO! I’m from New Haven and I’ve been at EVO for two years. I graduated from St. John’s University with a degree in psychology and 2 minors in international studies and women and gender studies. I enjoy watching TV, drawing/painting, video games, music, fashion and anime. I love meeting all of you and learning about your interests and dreams. I’m looking forward to seeing all of the new students and familiar faces of EVO this year!
