    Biography

    Christina Wesolek is a Preceptor in the Interdisciplinary Science Learning Laboratories; concentrating on the SCEN101 course which focuses on Interdisciplinary Physical Science and Astronomy for non-science majors. "Our objective is to encourage students to explore Physical Science and Astronomy individually and in a group setting. They have the opportunity to explore their work and present it by using conceptual drawings, descriptive explanations, and computation. Finally, we foster the connection to real-life applications as students' link physical concepts to other fields, historical data, every day usages, and more."

    Christina has experience as an educator, scientist, and administrator designing and implementing curricula for a variety of ages and disciplines. She uses her interdisciplinary background to collaborate with others in ISLL to promote holistic student development, and encourage individual and group participation through experiential learning. In addition to her current role as Preceptor, Christina has taught interactive courses in Anatomy and Physiology, Animal Behavior, and Urban Environmental Education, and led science- and education-based programs and workshops.

    Christina's research spans the social sciences, animal behavior, comparative hearing and communication, and conservation biology. She completed her Ph.D. at Antioch University New England in 2020 where her research focused on sea turtle conservation, conservation psychology, environmental identity, coastal community engagement, and community-based conservation in Kefalonia, Greece. Christina's work has included communities and groups in the United States, Costa Rica, Greece, and Africa. She is able to use her experiences as examples of real-life linkages to physics and astronomy concepts for her current students.​
