Danny Schissler

As Associate Project Manager at the Arnold Arboretum, I work across multiple departments, assisting team members in all stages of ongoing projects related to public engagement, education, research, communications, and infrastructure. Outside of the office, I help coordinate the Tree Spotters citizen science program, and regularly contribute science-based content to the Arboretum’s online and print publications. Previously, I worked as an intern in the Wolkovich Lab, a seasonal gardener on the grounds crew, a Hunnewell horticultural intern, and a research assistant in the Friedman Lab. My personal and professional interests lie at the intersection of nature and culture–a boundary that I explore through fine art and science outreach. I also enjoy running, bonsai, and hot sauce.

I am currently pursuing a Master of Liberal Arts in Museum Studies from Harvard Extension School.
