About the creator of the Wild Focus Project

Emma Hanisch is a science communication master's student at the University of Otago in New Zealand. Originally from Glenn Dale, Maryland, she's traveled extensively and has yet to find a place she doesn't like. After developing a crush on a summer camp counselor who was teaching digital photography, Emma took up photography as a hobby. She now takes photos almost everywhere she goes.

Emma is interested in a wide variety of science topics, including environmental science, conservation, biology, psychology, anthropology, astronomy, and geology. She also likes writing about those things for a wide variety of audiences, as well as non-scientific creative writing. If you have a question or comment, you can drop her a line here.
