Marcy Rockman is the US National Park Service Climate Change Adaptation Coordinator for Cultural Resources, based in Washington, DC.
An archaeologist by training, her research focus is how humans gather, share, remember, and transmit environmental information, particularly during colonization. She’s done fieldwork across the American West and Europe, and in the Middle East, and worked in environmental compliance in many western states as well.
Ms. Rockman came to DC as an American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Science & Technology Policy Fellow in which capacity she connected archaeology to homeland security risk communication at the EPA.
Her current role at NPS addresses impacts of climate change on cultural resources and use of cultural resource information in federal- to global-level adaptation and resilience planning.
Some of her projects include the critical role of stories in engaging social response to climate change and the roles the U.S. National Park Service has in the national and global conversation.
Marcy has a Ph.D. in Anthropology from the University of Arizona, and B.Sc. in Geology from the College of William and Mary.
