Summer Education, Communication, & Policy Intern
My name is Bailey Burk, I'm a Microbiology major with minors in Chemistry and Environmental Sciences at Oregon State. In addition to my classes at OSU I play clarinet in four music ensembles on campus, including Marching Band and Wind Ensemble. I love being outside, reading, playing volleyball, and my dog (his name is Mocha). I have been doing research in environmental microbiology since I got to OSU, and I'm excited to step outside of that a little bit this summer.
My internship is working with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife's Marine Resources Program. I will be helping to spread the word about the native Red Rock Crab, which is commonly mistaken as an invasive Japanese crab. I'll be researching the misinformation out there and helping create a campaign all about how Red Rock Crabs are native crabs.
