Professional memberships include the National Council for Science and the Environment (NCSE), Association of Biology Laboratory Educators (ABLE), National Association for Research in Science Teaching (NARST), National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and the National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT).
Conference presentations include "The Nature of Dissection: Exploring Student Conceptions," presented at NARST (National Association for Research in Science Teaching) in Dallas, April 2005.
Dr. Michele Goldsmith is an associate professor of Science at SNHU. Prior to her current position, she was the scientist-in-residence at Emerson College, assistant professor at Tufts School of Veterinary Medicine,and the McKennan Postdoctoral Fellow at Dartmouth College. She received a Master of Science from Bucknell University and Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy in Biological Anthropology from Stony Brook University.
As a Fulbright Scholar, she studied lowland gorillas in the Congo, and in 1999, as a National Geographic researcher, began her long-term study examining the impacts and ethical implications of mountain gorilla tourism in Uganda.
Goldsmith is on the board of the Great Ape World Heritage Species Project and Conservation New Hampshire and has published numerous scientific articles, book chapters and is co-editor of "Gorilla Biology: A Multidisciplinary Perspective," Cambridge University Press. Although primates are her focus, she is interested in conservation and ethical issues surrounding all wild and captive animals.
