Joseph Bevington

  • Water Policy and Science Communications Fellow, School of Freshwater Sciences

Joe Bevington is the water policy and science communications fellow at the Center for Water Policy. He received his bachelor’s degree from the UW-Madison in conservation biology and geography. During his time at UW-Madison, he participated in multiple research projects in ecology labs including work on terrestrial and aquatic invasive species, paleoclimatology, and fish ecology.

Following graduation, he worked for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources as a fisheries biologist where he gained critical experiences in policy, natural resource management, and public communication.

He hopes to expand his knowledge of water policy and science communication through the newly created master’s thesis track in water policy, economics and management at the School of Freshwater Sciences, and utilize those skills to develop novel science communication strategies for the Center.
