Kelly O'Donnell

Macaulay Honors College
Director of Science Forward
Kelly O'Donnell is the director of Science Forward at Macaulay Honors College. The BioBlitz is part of the Science Forward program. Kelly is an evolutionary ecologist with an interest in invasive plants and plant response to the novel conditions of the urban environment. She has conducted research on invasive Japanese knotweed and compared natural selection dynamics of that species with a non-invasive relative, woodland knotweed. Kelly is very interested in undergraduate science education and outreach. At Stony Brook where she received her doctorate, she created video podcasts for an introductory biology laboratory and investigated the effect of these podcasts on student performance and attitudes. Kelly has an urban flora project with the Encyclopedia of Life that involves the creation of an urban plant educational resource featuring species that live in New York City.
