In this SelectScience interview, we speak with Ulyana Nadia Horodyskyj, founder of Science in the Wild, an initiative that gives the public a chance to participate in immersive and educational adventure citizen science expeditions around the world – ranging from climbing mountains such as Kilimanjaro and Aconcagua or trekking through volcanic fields to exploring Moon/Earth analog landscapes on Earth. Alongside these trips, Horodyskyj also publishes field reports, providing valuable data on a variety of climatological questions. Here, she shares the portable technology enabling her research and how Science in the Wild is going to adapt in a post-pandemic world.
