Dr. Victoria DePalma earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry from Whitworth University and her Ph.D. in Environmental Science from the University of Idaho. Her research focuses on how people perceive environmental issues and how to communicate environmental ideas more effectively across groups. To do this, she creates, implements and analyzes nationally representative surveys, and runs workshops to determine how to improve upon cross-disciplinary collaboration. She aims to integrate science, values, and the social sciences more effectively, and to incorporate interdisciplinary techniques in her teaching and research to better understand and address complex issues.
