Suzanne Pierre, Exploratorium

Suzanne is a scientist, educator, and social organizer dedicated to the liberation of human beings through deep understanding of and communion with the natural world. Suzanne is trained as an ecosystems ecologist and biogeochemist focused on global environmental change and critical ecological study. Through her scientific research on the global cycles of matter and energy between plants, microbes, and the non-living environment, Suzanne has begun to explore how oppression, supremacist ideologies, and extractive societies have shaped the past and present natural environment at the micro and macro scales. She investigates and promotes this novel perspective on environmental and climate change through the work of her research and social change collective, the Critical Ecology Lab. Suzanne is currently a visiting scholar in the Department of Integrative Biology at the University of California, Berkeley and is a 2021 Osher Fellow at the California Academy of Sciences.
