Participatory Action Research Scientist, Michael Fields Agricultural Institute
Based in Madison, Wisconsin, Mrill Ingram combines research and practice in a career dedicated to understanding peoples' relationships with their environments. She is Participatory Action Research Scientist with Michael Fields Agricultural Institute, working on citizen science and integrated agricultural systems. She is author of a 2022 book with Temple University Press, “Loving Orphaned Space, the art and science of belonging to Earth.” It’s a geographer’s take on the enormous amount of overlooked and abused space around us created by our infrastructure, and a call to create new ways to occupy and participate in those spaces to center equity and ecology and negotiate being better citizens of Earth. Mrill also has a 2013 co-authored book from MIT Press on the use of narrative analysis to understand grassroots environmental action.
