Marybeth Shea joined the Professional Writing Program in January 2002, but her work on the University of Maryland campus dates back to 1986, when she led incoming School of Public Policy graduate students and mid-career professionals through “Writing Boot Camp.” She has also worked on institutional development projects for the university’s Center for Global Change and created publications for the School of Public Policy. She currently is co-Principal Investigator on a USDA-funded research project that brings together agricultural scientists and farmers from Maryland’s Eastern Shore to develop best practices both for reducing chicken farm pollution and for communicating these practices to the broader agricultural and scientific community. Marybeth is currently working toward her Ph.D. in Marine-Estuarine-Environmental Sciences here at Maryland, and she brings these academic and professional experiences to bear in her teaching of Science Writing and Writing about the Environment in PWP.
