Over the 12 months of the Fellowship, Research Curation Fellows will work individually in their research area, and as a cohort among other Research Curation Fellows to share knowledge and best practices across topics. **Major goals of Research Curation Fellowships for each topic area:** 1. Network with scientists, technologists, and/or organizers working in the environmental topic area and invite contributions to Public Lab’s community science resources in this area. 2. Organize quarterly virtual events where contributors and other interested community members can connect on the environmental topic. 3. Co-organize a once annual, three-month period of focused outreach and content development in their focus topic area with Public Lab’s Research Coordinator, culminating in a half-day event featuring research highlights, community conversations, and demos or live builds of environmental monitoring tools. ## Current Research Curation Fellows Four Research Curation Fellows are starting in spring 2021 and will be working within the topics of air, water, soil/land, and community organizing and advocacy. + **[Alejo Bonifacio](**, @alejobonifacio, [Water Research Curation Fellow]( + **[Julia Masters](**, @julia_e_masters, [Organizing & Advocacy Research Curation Fellow]( + **[Laurel Mire](**, @laurel_mire, [Land Research Curation Fellow]( + **[Vania Fong](**, @fongvania, [Air Research Curation Fellow]( Learn more about each of these Fellows in [this post]( and their own introductory posts linked above! ## Events by Research Curation Fellows Calls that Research Curation Fellows host will appear below.
