Outreach

  • Prof. Doty is committed to outreach locally, nationally, and internationally.

  • Doty is currently working with students in two Advanced Placement Environmental Sciences classes at the American Canyon High School in Vallejo, California. She is providing guidance in their live oak restoration project and on increasing carbon sequestration with willows.
  • Doty has used webinars, short films, and press releases to reach out to a wider audience to spread knowledge of the importance of the plant microbiome. Here are a few examples:
  • News article on NPR about our agricultural endophytes (2018): Microbes to reduce carbon footprint
  • Advanced Hardwood Biofuels NW webinar (2014): Endophytes to Increase Sustainability
  • AHB webinar on phytoremediation (2017): Partnering Trees & Microbes for Tackling Pollution
  • Agronomy news article on increased growth of rice using endophytes (2015)
  • Press release on increased drought tolerance using endophytes (2016)
  • Press release on N-fixation in wild poplar (2016)
  • Press release on improved remediation of TCE pollution (2017)
  • Press release on improved remediation of PAHs (2014)
  • Science article about our work on N-fixation (May 2015)
  • Doty provides workshops at the annual ASUW Expanding Your Horizons conferences for encouraging high school girls to enter the fields of science and engineering.
  • Expanding Horizons

  • Doty also participates in the Paws on Science days at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle that teaches thousands of people about University of Washington research.

  • Doty is part of the executive team of the International Poplar Commission (IPC) of the United Nations with the goal of supporting rural livelihoods through environmental applications of poplar and willow.

  • Doty is also a member of the International Symbiosis Society (ISS), the aim of which is to disseminate information to the public about symbiotic interactions. She has served as the Vice President of the ISS since 2015.

  • Many of the endophyte strains that promote agricultural growth and pollutant detoxification have been licensed to Intrinsyx and are made available through contacting Dr. John Freeman (jfreeman@intrinsyx.com).
