PPEH Summer Public Research Intern

2020 - 2020

I am a rising sophomore in the College of Arts and Sciences studying English and Environmental Studies. I have previously worked as an environmental educator for youth in West Virginia, and I am looking forward to applying that experience to my work with Futures Beyond Refining. I am especially interested in the intersection of urbanism and environmental justice, and as a permanent resident of Center City Philadelphia, I have a particular interest in local urban issues. I am very excited to learn from the perspectives of both neighborhood residents and academic experts on topics ranging from public health to climate change and to spend the summer working with people who share my passion for environmentalism.
