Introducing President Marc Milne!

The Indiana Academy of Science is proud to introduce the next President of the Academy, Dr. Marc Milne. Dr. Milne is Associate Professor of Biology and Ron and Laura Strain Honors Faculty Fellow at the University of Indianapolis. His research interests include spider ecology and taxonomy, and he maintains a vibrant laboratory of undergraduate students at UIndy. He holds a BS in Biology from the University of North Florida and a PhD in Ecology from Old Dominion University. Previously, Dr. Milne served as the Chair of the Biodiversity and Natural Areas Committee, a member of the Budget Committee, and a member of the Senior Research Grants Committee. In a recent interview with UIndy's Intercom, Milne detailed his plans for his presidency: "In my term, I hope to continue to build upon the improvements of past Presidents, including increasing the breadth of our diversity and inclusion initiatives and establishing a student fellowship to advise local government agencies on science policy. Additionally, I hope to develop our partnerships with local land conservation organizations such as land trusts and The Nature Conservancy to better protect local habitats."
