As a child, Peggy Mullin’s passion for science and storytelling started somewhere between spending all day splashing through the muddy creeks of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and poring over a different National Geographic before bed every night.
An environmental science major with minors in marine science and photojournalism, Peggy is a strong believer in the mutual benefits of art and science. She is dedicated to making science accessible and understandable and believes that stories can change the world. Her undergraduate environmental research has taken her to Montana, Australia, Hawaii and North Carolina, and will hopefully continue to lead her to wherever the science goes.
She is currently a communications intern for the UNC Institute of the Environment and public relations chair of UNC Epsilon Eta. In the past, she has worked as a a laboratory technician in the Piehler Lab at the UNC Institute of Marine Sciences, communications intern in the UNC Office of Research Communications, a staff photographer and writer for The Daily Tar Heel and is the former director of social media and outreach for Climate Stories NC.
