Scott Byrd MMSA Title: Researcher

Scott Byrd joined MMSA in January 2017 as a researcher.  He holds a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of California, Irvine and a Masters in Environmental Sciences from Oklahoma State University.  Scott has been an active researcher for over 15 years in the fields of human rights and social justice, non-profit organizations, and environmental policy.  Prior to joining MMSA, Scott was a faculty member at Murray State University in Kentucky and most recently worked as a independent consultant in educational assessment. At MMSA Scott coordinates the educational research and evaluation of MMSA programs and supports staff at each step of the research process from proposal to data archiving.  Since his first experience as an educator working as an AmeriCorp VISTA at Communities in Schools, Scott has viewed education as vital to developing an individual’s critical thinking and problem solving skills, especially in STEM related fields, and looks forward to supporting educators and programs that fulfill this objective.  When not working for MMSA, he enjoys writing science fiction, maintaining hiking trails throughout the Medomak valley, and renovating he and his wife’s 1700s mill house in Waldoboro.  Scott has also served on his local conservation commission and on the executive board of the Medomak Arts Project.
