Isis Gillespie

Museum Archaeologist, Conservator

I am a 21-year-old archaeologist and anthropologist currently getting my master’s degree in anthropology at Wayne State University. My course work mostly pertains to museum studies and the study of human past. The four-field study includes biology, linguistics, culture, and archaeology. To sum it up, I love rocks and bones and fossils and history. I currently work at the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Museum where I am conserving a plane from World War II in which an Airmen crashed into the Lake Huron. Previously I worked at the Michigan Science Center as an educator in the museum and for traveling science. I love educating about history and how it is all uncovered through science and empathy.

Tell us about a hobby or activity you enjoy outside your STEM career.

I love to go camping all year round. I love bonfires, kayaking, and reading in the woods. Another plus is going to bodies of water to find rocks, minerals, and fossils!
