Shelby Herbert

Student Reporter

Shelby Herbert is a graduate student of the Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno. She’s a reporter for the Mick Hitchcock, Ph.D., Project for Visualizing Science and covers regional science news.

She considers herself an (underachieving) student of nature and wants to connect her journalism with ongoing research in climatology, ecology, land management, conservation, and agriculture.

Shelby enjoys birdwatching, backpacking, writing poetry, baking, and doomscrolling. She is a devoted fan of Phoebe Bridgers and eastern phoebes.
