I'm a senior at Brandeis University majoring in Environmental Studies. I am interested in a wide range of environmental and public health issues, such as energy and climate change, endangered species protection, water quality, open space preservation, waste management, and agriculture and global food systems. I've worked with a number of environmental organizations and activist groups over the past few years. I'm involved in the New England student coalition for climate change action - Students for a Just and Stable Future/Better Future Project. I've also worked with the New York League of Conservation Voters as a Politics Intern. I spent last semester studying comparative ecology and conservation in Ecuador, with SIT. I'm also an avid reader of Haruki Murakami novels and enjoy hikes and long bike rides.
