Allyson is an exhibit developer, photographer, and multimedia producer who lives in Portland, Oregon, where she works for the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. She and the OMSI exhibits team recently completed Under the Arctic: Digging Into Permafrost, an NSF-funded traveling exhibition that explores permafrost thaw due to climate change. She has previously traveled to Alaska to research and produce content for the exhibition, and during these trips she fell in love with the Arctic in a big way. She is delighted to have another opportunity to learn from permafrost experts and record their stories.
