About

Liz Neeley is the Assistant Director of Ocean Science Outreach for COMPASS. She develops and leads the new media and multimedia components of communications workshops for the Aldo Leopold Leadership Program and universities across the country. Before joining COMPASS, Liz studied the evolution and visual ecology of tropical reef fishes. She got hooked on science communication after a journalist helped her articulate why she really cared about fish vision for the very first time… after only three years of her work toward her PhD. As a lifelong traveler, Liz was always fascinated by culture shock and what gets lost in translation. After grad school, she went on to help communities and scientists in Fiji and Papua New Guinea connect their knowledge of local coral reefs ecosystems to the media. She gained a lasting appreciation of the challenges in making international science policy while working on trade in the deep-sea corals used in luxury fashion and design.
