Deb Morrison, PhD, is a collaborative design based educator-researcher engaged in disrupting racism and other forms of intersectional oppression, specifically in the area of climate literacy and action. Her work in ECOS connects across all three areas of education (teaching and learning climate change, justice and action in K-12 and community based education settings), communication (around climate literacy and justice), and outreach (collaborations with scientists in education and community based settings).
She is a learning scientist at the Institute of Science and Math Education within the College of Education at the University of Washington. Morrison research interests are in environmental justice, literacy, and action, particularly in the area of climate change. In her positionality as a white science educator and researcher, she believes that praxis is a personal responsibility and seeks to engage in ethical research and its translation into practice. In terms of place, Morrison is located in the Salish Sea region of North America, working across both British Columbia and Washington State.
