#CrowdCloudLIVE After each episode's WORLD premiere in April, show host, producer, and people seen on the show participated in post-premiere roundtable discussions. Viewers like you listened in, asked questions, and were able to dive deeper into the power of Citizen Science.

Watch the recorded Facebook Live events now. Discover more about how Citizen Science is revolutionizing the ways we gather, analyze, and utilize the data that fuels scientific research, discovery, and community action.

Chris Wood

Chris Wood is the Assistant Director of Information Science at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology where he works on several projects including eBird, Birds of North America and Neotropical Birds. These activities are all built around Chris’s primary interest of developing ways to connect birders, researchers and the conservation community to ultimately better understand and conserve birds and their ecosystems. He’s often on the road, sharing CLO’s ideas of how to promote birding and conservation and improve the science. He has been one of the developers of eBird and realized early on, after some hiccups, that to be successful an app had to appeal to birders’ enthusiasms for making life lists and other competitive instincts! (See our informative web video featuring Chris and his wife and collaborator, Jessie Barry.)
