Keynote Speakers

Susan Allen

Susan Allen is a two-time graduate of Stockton University in Mathematics and Instructional Technology, and works in the University Relations and Marketing Office doing photography, writing and social media. She has also taught Visual Design and Communications as an adjunct instructor.

In the summer of 2015, she was selected by NASA as one of 40 social media professionals to cover the live RS-25 rocket engine test at the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi to help share a piece of NASA’s journey to Mars with the Stockton community.

As a nature photographer, her camera often leads her to wildlife refuges and national parks, and to volunteer projects to survey fish in the Grand Canyon with USGS and Arizona Game and Fish, to rescue migrating amphibians during road crossings, to tag horseshoe crabs during spawning season, and to band shorebirds that migrate long distances. What she enjoys most about nature photography is sharing images that reveal unique and often unnoticed scenes from the natural world and communicating science.
