Alexis Malcomb

Alexis Malcomb has spent the majority of her career working for the U.S. Forest Service working on native plant research in the Great Basin while obtaining multiple degrees in Applied and Social Sciences to focus on creating a bridge between research, policy, and community. Previous to USRT, she has managed and/or assisted on a myriad of lab and field research projects relating to: fire restoration, native plant revegetation, plant selection, seed technology, agricultural seed production, seed increase, and projected species range shifts due to climate change. Alexis has worked closely with The Great Basin Native Plant Project- a multi-state collaborative project with more than 20 federal, state, and private cooperators. Her focus was on cooperative outreach, administrative support, grant administration, and coordination of events in order to increase the promotion and awareness of the Great Basin Native Plant Project as a publicly recognized research entity.
