Dr. Deborah Charbonneau, Associate Professor, is currently on sabbatical at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. Her work with the Smithsonian focuses on a STEM-related project. She is currently working with a team as a visiting research fellow to evaluate three science exhibits at the National Museum of Natural History.

Learn more about the exhibits Dr. Charbonneau is working on:
Narwhal (arctic whales)
Objects of Wonder (birds, insects, etc.)
Outbreak (global epidemics)

Dr. Charbonneau will be conducting interviews with visitors at the exhibits while she is on-site. We look forward to sharing her insights when she returns to WSU next semester.
