By training Emily Finke isÂ a forensic anthropologist and informal science educator. She has a passion for teaching everything from entomophagy to exoplanets. She is happiest when she is in a creek, teaching 10 year olds how to catch crayfish and look for tardigrades, or in the desert, surrounded by dinosaur skeletons. (No, anthropologists don’t study dinosaurs, but anthropologists who also have a degree in geology and who work for museum or environmental education departments do.)
When she isn’t talking about science professionally, she isâ€¦ well, still talking about science.Â She is also a contributor to Mad Art Lab.
She can also be found on Twitter as @seelixÂ and on Google+ at gplus.to/efinke When not online, she’s probably at the pub gleefully talking to strangers about penguins not living on the North Pole.
