Katherine A. Castagno
Coastal Sustainability Postdoctoral Fellow | Outreach Resources


I am a postdoctoral fellow appointed jointly with Northeastern University's Marine Science Center and The Nature Conservancy. I study the impacts of storms on the resilience of coastal communities. I received my PhD from the MIT/WHOI Joint Program in Oceanography, where I studied how major storms impacted coastal New England over the last 2,000 years. As a former outdoor educator and elementary school science teacher, I am passionate about building literacy in natural science, climate change, and coastal protection. I have extensive experience in adapting lessons, experiments, and demonstrations for all age levels and abilities, from pre-K through adult learners.

I look forward to adding to this webpage as I continue to document my outreach activities. Please check back soon!



Feel free to contact me anytime to discuss research, outreach opportunities, or musical gigs.
