Coordinator for Research and Outreach

Nicole Wilkinson, Coordinator for Research and Outreach | 919-513-1216

Nicole Wilkinson joined WRRI in October 2010. She serves as the coordinator for research and outreach, where she helps to coordinate the annual grants competition, manages WRRI’s interaction with the Urban Water Consortium and Stormwater Group, and coordinates a variety of workshops and an annual conference. These efforts are aimed at increasing the knowledge and research base of our state’s water resources and transferring that research into the hands of practitioners and decision makers.

Wilkinson earned her B.S. in marine science and biology from the University of Miami. After a stint of international volunteer work, she received her Master’s in Coastal Environmental Management from Duke University. From 2007 to 2010, she served as the Coastal Training Program Coordinator at the North Inlet-Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in Georgetown, South Carolina, where she delivered training and technical assistance to coastal decision makers to help them make informed, science-based decisions about coastal management.

In her free time, Wilkinson enjoys being active outdoors, including hiking, biking, camping, playing volleyball and outings with her two dogs. Mostly she enjoys being mom to a young son and to embracing whatever path he leads her down on any given day.
