This website is the internet home of Chelsea Fowler. This website showcases a unique combination of stories about the places I’ve been and the critters I’ve encountered. A firm believer in inclusive science, this website offers a wide range of content and has something for everyone. Whether you’re looking to learn about my research, my experiences in the Peace Corps, or are just looking to learn something new, this is the place for you!

Site Sections:


  • Between us mammals: A place for us mammals to get all the dirt (sometimes literally!) on everyone from the microbes to the monkeys. Come for the sizzling tea, stay for the science.
  • Career Journey: Currently, I’m working on my Master’s degree at University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science. Learn more about my research, past work experiences, and career path (so far!).
  • Travel: This section organizes all of the content in my site by location. Travel around the world, gather some travel tips, or learn something new.
