Kyle Lima

Kyle works to support Schoodic Institute’s data initiative – managing, organizing, teaching about, and working with the data collected by our staff and collaborators. He is developing the data management plan that the institute will adopt, and works with other science and education staff to achieve their data and data visualization needs. Additionally, he works closely with the Forest Ecology Director to progress projects working with spectra to understand the natural world.

Kyle has been engaged with Schoodic Institute since high school when he volunteered on phenology projects after school. This was one experience that pushed him to pursue a degree in Wildlife Ecology at the University of Maine, where he discovered his love for scientific research and the importance it plays in conservation in a dynamic world! He has traveled to faraway places conducting field work and research before coming to Schoodic, but returned to work for a better world in the place that he has always called home.

Growing up in Ellsworth, Maine, Kyle was passionate about environmental science and conservation from a young age because of his outdoor hobbies. He likes to spend his free time birding, woodworking, drawing, rock climbing, and hiking in the amazing landscapes that Maine has to offer!
