Allie Miller

Biological Curator

Elko, Minnesota

Allie began volunteering for AskNature in 2013 and has been instrumental in its development through her curation of biological strategies and illustrations.

"Before volunteering with AskNature, I knew very little, if anything, about biomimicry. Now, I feel equipped to not only understand the information, but to serve as a competent spokesperson for the biomimicry community."

AskNature and Zygote Quarterly (ZQ) are joining forces to bring you the best biomimicry stories. A Digital Magazine Awards Finalist for the past three consecutive years, ZQ is devoted to the nexus of science and design where they meet in the field of bio-inspired design. The magazine features case studies, interviews, book reviews, and more.

Check out how ZQ is helping bring stories to life on AskNature in this example of REGEN Energy's EnviroGrid energy management system, which links to an in-depth case study on ZQ. Look for more ZQ content soon and be sure to check out the latest issue of ZQ!

Why AskNature?

Nature has already solved many of the problems we are grappling with. Animals, plants, and microbes are the consummate engineers. After billions of years of research and development, failures are fossils, and what surrounds us is the secret to survival.

Check out A World of Solutions, a five-minute film narrated by Morgan Freeman, produced by Lyn Lear, and directed by Louie Schwartzberg, for a clear reminder of the sustainable world that already surrounds us.
