David Chuchuca

(Assistant Director) outlines and writes our virtual content

He is a former microbiology graduate student who aims to communicate scientific research with the public. He received his B.S. in Biochemistry from Binghamton University and continued into graduate school to investigate microbial biofilms. After two years of research into biofilm dispersion, David left the lab bench to bridge the gap between dense scientific information and public understanding.

Field trips offer a unique opportunity to directly interact with our communities in fun and memorable ways. He draws inspiration from the curiosity of our young citizen scientists.
