It is an honor to have been accepted into the Graham Sustainability Scholars Program. I am pursuing a degree in Environmental Engineering and a minor in Energy Science and Policy. My interests and experiences are both within the field of engineering and environmental science, and they are as follows:

  • energy systems and ways to design these systems to be more resilliant
  • designing green infrastructure and cities that are sustainable
  • the availability of clean water to all

I took a class last summer at the field site called Camp Davis, located in Jackson, Wyoming. The class was called Sustainabile and Fossil Energy, and I learned of the importance of and ways to transition from our current energy state to a more sustainable system.
