Dr. Margaret Lowman, known world-wide as "Canopy Meg" for her tireless efforts to save global forests, and the visionary behind the creation of the canopy walkway in Florida's Myakka River State Park, has been selected by the National University of Singapore as the institution's first-ever female Visiting Distinguished Professor in STEM studies. During the school's spring semester, Dr. Lowman will lecture both in public science forums as well as for the university's science department seminars, and mentor STEM students, particularly women. She will also continue her important conservation work nearby in Malaysia, submitting a UNESCO world heritage nomination for an important rain forest near Penang.  Dr. Lowman is a global scientist and the Executive Director of the Sarasota-based TREE Foundation, an international non-profit organization dedicated to tree and forest research, exploration, education, and conservation.
