A couple months back, I introduced the beginnings of an epic collaboration known as Bio Logik.

Bio Logik is the deeper understanding of Biology and Ecology that is achieved when science, hip hop, and videos merge. This collaboration emphasizes the production of scientifically accurate music videos that 1) create a more personal connection between students and science and 2) make science accessible to a broader audience. The Bio Logik crew is represented by SDSU professor (Dr. Jeremy Long), high school teacher (John Ashley), two hip hop artists (Parker Edison and Generik), a film production team (Rowlbertos), myself and other SDSU graduate students.

Over the past couple of months, students from Mar Vista High School have been working diligently on their science music videos and now without further ado…

I think we have created little monsters. Mission accomplished.

Alex is committed to a life of inspiring others to view science through a more dynamic and empowering lens. Alex obtained her M.Sc. in Chemical Ecology from San Diego State University and most recently resided as a Science Programs Manager and Marine Scientist for the National Park Service. As an ecologist, storyteller, and community engager, she has spanned critical boundaries between stakeholders in education, academia, non-profit, and government to translate the most current scientific bodies of work in ways that are accessible and inclusive. She is a strong proponent of unconventional science communication and extending the broader impacts of science to the public using the outlets of art, digital media, education, and citizen science. Currently, Alex works at the interface of climate resilience and community with the Climate Science Alliance. As Deputy Director for the Alliance, her hope is that through her work and experience she can get the world to think differently about how we connect and impact the thriving ecosystem around us and commit to fostering a more resilient future.
