Corporate Partners & Blue Prosperity

Allison Bell joined the IoES staff in 2018 as a research associate for the Corporate Partners Program and the Blue Prosperity project. She assists the director of both programs, Jennie Dean, in event development, project coordination, research support, and website products.

Allison graduated UCLA IoES in 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in environmental science and a minor in conservation biology. As a student, she worked on research programs across campus, including the Grand Challenges – Sustainable Los Angeles undergraduate research program and a field marine biology quarter in French Polynesia. She also assisted with environmental microbiology research in Dr. Shaily Mahendra’s lab. Allison looks forward to further contributing to UCLA research in her new role at IoES, particularly with regard to sustainable small island development.

In her free time, Allison enjoys running, exploring the many culinary cultures of Los Angeles and travelling the world.
